Monthly Artists Highlight

Michelle Rouch

Resources for Educators

IAAA Tucson-Chapter prides itself on working as a public outreach team to educate both children and adults through our art.  We have many heroes from astronomy and space programs that we honor in our paintings and hope they invoke curiosity in people to find out more about them. In addition, we are fascinated by the known and unknown universe we live in and strive to capture its beauty and wonder through our art.  Our hope is to educate and fascinate all minds using the tools we know best, art.
