Have you ever dreamed of recreating a miniature world? Would you like to learn how to reproduce realistic scenes on a smaller scale?
A diorama is a miniature replica of a structure, environment, or scene designed to look like a real scale. In this 3 session course, you will discover the different principles of the art of making a diorama by creating an amazing facade composed of a round door, dressed with a stylized frame and greenery.
We will work on a 1:12 scale using various tools and simple materials to create a custom miniature.
Session 1: Introduction to the different tools and construction of the structure using a foam board, cork sheet and polystyrene. You’ll learn new techniques to create an authentic look and make your miniature look real.
Session 2: Setting up the wall structure and mastering the use of acrylic paint in multiple layers. You’ll learn the different steps and detailing techniques to give the scene a realistic look.
Session 3: Creation of the floor, vegetation, and mini flower pots with cork sheets. Installation of the wooden door and window, and making an aged broom.
Everyone will have the opportunity to personalize their work by varying the colors, the vegetation, changing the shape of the door and the window.
Skills required: patience and attention to detail and above all, the desire to learn a new art form.
The price includes all materials and equipment, as well as lots of pro tips!
The training sessions will take place on Thursdays, March 31, April 7 and 14 – from 6 to 9 pm.
