The Dream Rocket Project launched in 2009 and is collecting thousands of artworks from various regions of the world. Eventually, all submissions will be connected side by side to wrap the skeleton of a Space Launch System (SLS) rocket replica. This wrapped SLS will be placed on temporary exhibit at locations around the United States.
Over the last four years, Tesseract students have contributed over 30 pieces of art toward this project.
“We are very proud of our participation in the Dream Rocket Project and have been a founding leader for schools in the nation through our participation,” explains Barb Perez, Tesseract Visual Arts Educator.
Student’s artwork focuses on research they conducted on Women’s rights around the globe and here in the United States. They found a concept they supported or wanted to present and working in groups they developed their theme, visual presentations and final products. Collaboratively, they discussed the importance of Women’s rights and the history of Women’s rights movements.
“We choose to participate in this project because of Tesseract’s focus on project-based learning and our ability to build our curriculum based on this driver,” Perez continues.
The Dream Rocket Project will be on display in New York until June 8. You can also get a glimpse of the artwork online. Click here and search Tesseract School.
