Experience a Unique Perspective of What We Are Seeing
When Comparing Aerial Earth Photos with Various Images of Celestial Objects of
An open-ended investigation using the basic
elements of the visual arts to compare images of Earth
and celestial objects of our universe. Examples of student comparisons
and a packet of resources will be shared.
Takeaways: Participants will: 1. use images from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and compare them to Earth images taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand; 2. compare and contrast, using the basic elements in art and the properties of matter used in science, to describe each object; and 3. continue to create their own comparisons using the images made available in the workshop.
