Space Out Family Night Design by Breanna Mansel / Noche de la Familia en el Espacio Diseño de Breanna Mansel

At 2019 Dixon Art Camp, campers learned Adobe Illustrator and created the graphics for the quarterly Dixon Family Day events of 2020.
“For the Space Out Family Night poster, I gathered inspiration from stars, moons, aliens, and galaxies. I wanted it to really make you think 'Space!' What better way to do that than a father and daughter alien standing on the moon waving at whoever may see it?”
 - Breanna Mansel, 10th grader, Overton High School


Durante el Dixon Art Camp 2019, los participantes aprendieron Adobe Illustrator y crearon los gráficos para los eventos trimestrales del Día de la Familia Dixon de 2020.
“Para el póster de Noche de la Familia en el Espacio, me inspiré en estrellas, lunas, extraterrestres y galaxias. Quería que realmente te hicieran pensar ‘¡Espacio!’ ¿Qué mejor manera de hacer eso que un padre y una hija alienígenas, de pie en la luna saludando a todos los que los ven? - 
Breanna Mansel, estudiante de décimo grado, Escuela Secundaria Overton
