Discover the history of wartime nose art, why military members had nose art added to their aircraft, and what their insignias meant to them. Participants will then explore symbolism and how we use pictures to express ourselves. Afterwards, youth will create their own insignia that represents them and paint it onto a silhouette of an aircraft nose.
