While at home, let’s take this time to enjoy being creative and become artists by making a diorama. The diorama will allow you to travel while staying in the comfort of your home.

Our French teacher, Maude, made a tutorial for you! This diorama is a great mountain landscape in a box.



Ok, but what’s a diorama?
A diorama is a model representing a scene with three-dimensional aspects, either in miniature or as a large-scale museum exhibit. This miniature display represents a scene from nature, a historical event, or the like, using stuffed wildlife, wax figures, real objects, etc., in front of a painted or photographed background.

Sounds interesting! Any more details?
The Palais de Tokyo located in Paris is a vibrant, bold, and pioneering place for artists in Europe. Watch their kid-friendly diorama video here.

Now, it’s your turn!
