Space Art

 

THIS CONTEST IN NOW OPEN!

 

The idea of the Space Art program is to encourage young students (6 to 14 years old) to imagine about the Universe, to learn about astronomy and discover things for themselves by researching information on an astronomical object.

Its aim is to encourage creativity and independent work amongst young students, and to strengthen and expand their astronomical knowledge and creativity. Art is a perfect way to achieve this.

Space Art is a site where students' vision can be placed and shared. We want students to represent through drawings or photographs their favourite astronomical object.

They just have to look for it in the sky, books or the internet and then draw it or make a picture of it using photography or combined techniques.

Space Art is organised by the European Association for Astronomy Education (EAAE) and sponsored by European Southern Observatory (ESO).

Many artists have inspired themselves on the vision of the nightsky or about the mythology associated to astronomical phenomena. Sometimes the association isn't quite obvious unless we are aware of it.

This page presents a gallery of some famous art pieces from that past that were inspired by the observation of the stars and astronomical phenomena.

Many artists produce impressions on today's astronomical discoveries.
