Skyline 7th graders participating in the Dream Rocket Project this spring. Combining science, history and art the students painted 2ft square images to submit to two separate exhibitions. Two of our paintings were displayed in San Diego, CA during the National Art Education Convention. Our paintings were joined by artwork from students across the United States.
Currently our two other paintings are on display at the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Nebraska.
Former astronaut Clayton Anderson from Ashland, NE signed our Dream Rocket Project poster last week and will be mailing each participating school a autographed certificate of participation.

Our Seventh grade art students submitted four 2’ square painted pieces for display this month. The 2 pieces will travel to San Diego, CA to be on display at the National Art Education Convention, 2 pieces will travel to Nebraska to be on display at an Air & Space Museum, and all 4 will be part of the Dream Rocket Art Installation in Alabama next year, coming together with students around the globe to create a quilt that will cover the Saturn V Rocket! (The rocket is taller than the statue of liberty!)
Congratulations to Carrieanna Blanchette for her Youth Art Month Flag Design being chosen as the Middle Division winner for the state! VAEA honored her with a certificate of her accomplishment and a large digital print of her design.
