Art In A Box

Fifth grade students recently unveiled thier Dioramas exhibit in the lobby of our school. After visiting The Hispanic Society of America on 157th Street and Broadway, students began working with a teaching artist from the Dia Art Foundation. The teaching artists taught the boys and girls how to create dioramas. Dioramas are 3-D displays of a picture or scene. These dioramas were created in boxes. Christine Hou (pictured above with students), from the Dia Art Foundation, made a special appearance at a 5th grade celebration to tell students what a wonderful job they did. "They did such a great job", said Christine. The dioramas will only be in the lobby during the for a short time. But, the Hispanic Society of America is open all year and is FREE!
