Let's bug out and make some art inspired by insects and aliens! What if insects were what we saw when we went to alien planets? What if aliens were the insects we see everyday? If you were to create an insect or an alien, what abilities would it have? Would it create something sweet like honey? Or would it bite us like a mosquito? In this class artists will be able to explore these ideas through learning about insects anatomy and how they live.
