On our visit to the Hermitage Museum in Amsterdam we saw a really fun collection of diorama's that children in a museum art program created, and of course I just had to share them with you! Plus, how many travel photos can one see in a row? (Mind you I've got lots and lots more to share, so stay tuned!)
I remember making diorama in shoe boxes as a kid, but I love these larger scale ones so much more! What a great way to study an important painting or even capture an experience that one may have documented with a photo. The supplies are quite simple: a cardboard box, acrylic paints, card stock, some glue and of course the desire to create!
I love the classic Dutch checkered floor with the simple figures and intense color, great results!
And a detailed facade is a great little feature as well!
And of course if you choose to do this project with a group, well then you can create a really fabulous wall display when the works are completed! Of course just one or two would be great too! And come to think of it, this could be a great project for Chanukah, the next holiday after Simchat Torah which we'll be celebrating on Monday (and Tuesday outside of Israel). All the best!
