Winter Skiing Magnetic Fun!

Our Art Adventurers became fashion and scenic designers last week with our interactive dioramas. Using wooden doll pins, yarn, various craft & found nature objects, students wrapped, pinched, twisted, overlapped and arranged to create figurines and a fun winter skiing scene!

But what made our dioramas interactive? Magnets of course! Thanks to the polarity of the magnets attached to the bottom of our skis and “magnetic wands”, we were able to play and watch our skiers come to life!
