"Observe the Sky and draw your emotions" is an art competition for students organized in Italy by the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF). Students of primary and secondary schools are invited to participate submitting their original drawings, paintings or 3Dmodels inspired by an astronomical object, by space exploration or just by observing the sky.
The competition was started in 2007 by the Catania Astrophysical Observatory and in the following years it grew in participation, going from local to a national level. In 2020 it was transformed in a digital initiative, thanks to the collaboration of the Capodimonte Astronomical Observatory of Naples and of EduINAF, INAF's new Online Magazine dedicated to Public Engagment. For the first time, the competition was organized and hosted by an online portal and opened for participants across the all country, reaching over 330 drawings, paintings and 3D models submitted.
In this video presentation we will highlight the 12 winners of the last edition and a selection of the most beautiful and original entries of the 2020 and previous editions, showing how the sky can inspire the youngest and give birth to a form of artistic expression.
