Dinosaur Diorama

April has been a busy month at Shady Oak and it’s been a while since I blogged about what we’ve been up to in the art room. Dioramas were one of my favorite art projects to do when I was young and so I thought the 1st and 2nd graders would enjoy making one too. They created a dinosaur diorama that involved them using some origami folding techniques. Painting the inside of a shoebox and creating scenery out of paper provided a background for their origami dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were created from colorful scrapbook paper using templates. 🙂

I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
