Informative and thoughtful teaching by Chris. The instructions are easy to follow. I also enjoyed how this class is part of a greater collection of classes that follow a theme, what a fun idea!

I love how you incorporate different mediums to create this amazing space-theme. RIght down to choosing a colour palette. Inspiring!

Let’s feel great around the camera!

What a fun idea to make and use pancakes for a moon surface. It looks so real! Thanks for the bump map too. Had never heard of it and think it will be so interesting to start using it. I also love the idea of several teachers working together and all publishing their class around the same topic. Well done Chris and wishing you loads of mooning pancakes in the project section...
