Do you like to fish? Make a 3-D triarama of your favorite fishing spot.
Sometimes the place where your family lives helps you choose what kind of job you’ll do. If you live along the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, your family may have been fishing for generations. Newfoundland’s island coastline has granite bluffs, blueberry burrens, and spruce-clad slopes, plus sea all around. Some villages can only be reached by water. People use small boats the way others use cars.
Ask your family whether any career traditions span your family’s generations. You might come from a family of teachers, miners, restaurateurs, or farmers. Display what you learn in a triarama. Use your own imagination. If you live in Newfoundland or Nova Scotia, you might make a scene similar to the one shown here.
With Crayola® Scissors, cut a recycled file folder into a square. Fold it in half point to point. Open and fold it in half the other way. Cut one fold to the center of your square. One of the sections along the cut edge will be the bottom of your triarama. The other will fold beneath it.
Cover your art area with newspaper. With Crayola Washable Kid’s Paint and Paint Brushes, illustrate the background. Show the setting for your family business. In Newfoundland, fishing villages have a distinctive look. Fishing equipment dominates the scene
Add 3-D items to your scene with Crayola Model Magic and collage materials. You might make lobster traps and nets spread out on a long pier. Or model fishing boats floating in the water. Attach your workers and their tools with Crayola School Glue.
To raise the walls of your triarama, slide one flap created by the cut over the other flap. Secure with glue. Air-dry before displaying your triarama.
