I think Diorama can also be spelled 'diarama' but it reminds too much of something that way.
The first Diorama I made was the first really magical 'artistic' happening that occurred in my life. I didn't know what I was doing but I had a plan and ideas kept popping in my head - I was making my first and only Shoebox Diorama. I was in 6th grade and my teacher, Mr. Daugherty instructed us to make one about a book we read. I only really half listened to the instructions as what seemed like a common factor I carried with me through my school life, so I was pretty much on my own in terms of what it was I was supposed to do. Things came together in a most extraordinary way: cotton balls, twigs, everything I needed I found literally at my fingertips. I got an A in the project for something I was entirely into. (A first in school life experience, being 'entirely into it.')
