Starlight Artist

Do you know an 8-10 year old who loves science and art? Starlight Artist is inspired by the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery, home of the Full Fuselage Trainer and the Hubble Space Telescope (model). Just as the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery is The Museum of Flight’s ode to modern space travel, Starlight Artist activities focus on how we can see beautiful images of space using tools such as telescopes, prisms and light filters. Kids can take on the role of astronomer and space artist to create watercolor paintings of amazing space objects.
