Splendid Space Art Box
In this box we look at three artists who have been particularly fascinated by mankind’s discoveries in outer space – Andy Warhol with his prints of astronauts and the “Moonwalk”, Wassily Kandinsky and his abstract ‘planet’ circles, and Alma Woodsey Thomas with her mosaic-like paintings of rockets and space launches.

What is inside the Splendid Space Box?
Space art first “took off” in 1877 when Jules Verne (author of Around the World in 80 Days) published a novel called ‘Off on a Comet’. Before that, nobody had depicted other planets as places that you could actually stand on—places that you could look up from, rather than to!
This box celebrates Space Art in its many forms, from flying rockets zooming off to space, to astronauts walking on the moon, from painted moon-mobiles, to colourful planet dioramas.
What's inside the box?
• A booklet introducing the theme, with information about artists, art styles and techniques.
• Clear instructions on projects tailored for ages 6+, and LoLA book recommendations for further reading.
• Plenty of quality art materials for your child
