We took part in The Fitzwilliam Museum‘s monthly family session, creating some art based on Damien Hirst’s spot painting for the Beagle 2 space mission. In 2003 Beagle 2 was thought to have been lost. However recent images from NASA reveal that it did indeed land safely on Mars, making Hirst’s spot painting the first work of art from Earth to land on another planet.
After viewing the art work we created our own versions using silver card and coloured sticker spots.
Here is what the boys came up with, thoughtfully placing each spot with consideration.
