For school-aged children and their families
As a boy, Alan wanted to fly planes. As a young navy pilot, Alan wished he could paint the view from the cockpit. So he took an art class to learn patterns and forms. But no class could prepare him for the beauty of the lunar surface some 240,000 miles from Earth. In 1969, Alan became the fourth man and first artist on the moon. He took dozens of pictures, but none compared to what he saw through his artisitc eyes. When he returned to Earth, he bagan to paint what he saw. Alan's paintings allowed humanity to experience what it truly felt like to walk on the moon.
