Painting and the Jurassic
Grades 2 through 4
Sep 12, 2015-Oct 31, 2015, 9:00AM-12:00PM
Prehistoric earth-- it’s environment, plants, animals, and events-- is a rich and diverse subject for learners of all ages and interests. From dinosaurs to trilobites, this unit is an education in both prehistoric times and exciting art methods and processes. In this class we will learn about paleontology as we excavate our own dinosaurs and also paleo-art as we try our hand at constructing a dinosaur from only a skeleton. We will create our own fossils and plaster casts—just like paleontologists! We will learn about dinosaur habitats and the prehistoric environment while creating eggs, nests, prehistoric plants, bugs fossilized in amber, and a dino terrarium! Students will also create paper mache dinosaurs and a 3-D scene including an “under the sea” mural made with our own trilobite and ammonite stamps. Students will even create their own dinosaur animation video! If you want to learn more about dinosaurs while also learning about art, this class is for you!
