Online event

Spend a morning gazing at the moon from the comfort of your home and learn to capture its beauty in this “daytime night sky" drawing workshop for all the family. 

Make your own moon art with the help of illustrator Abby Hobbs while lunar scientist Dr Josh Rasera explores the lunar landscape, and how its craters and darker seas tell a dramatic and ancient story of how it formed and what it formed of. 

*Hint* there is no cheese, but there are the elements to help humans live and breathe on the surface. And the ingredients for rocket fuel to help us blast off and explore the stars!

Suitable for all ages and all levels, from absolute beginners to lockdown artistes, this workshop has been developed in collaboration with M.Y.O (Make Your Own).

All you will need to take part is:

  • Something to draw FROM (this could be a picture of the moon you have taken or a picture from NASA’s extensive image library)
  • Something to draw ON (paper, a notebook, cardboard, etc.)
  • Something to draw WITH (pencils, biros, felt tips, highlighters, paints etc.
