No Animals Harmed in the Creation of Dickens Paper Mache Trophy Heads

Over 50 students from two Grade 5/6/7 classes created a wide-range of paper-mache trophy animal heads. Under the supervision of Dickens Elementary teachers Karim Bhimani and Tami McDiarmid and parent volunteer/artist Deb Copeland, the kids worked diligently, first researching their animal subject and then constructing the mache heads and mounting them on a wooden pedestal.

"The unique idea was that they would make animal trophy heads to display that would not require the hunting and killing of animals," says Dickens Vice Principal Karl Graham.

All the heads were inspired by a mixture of land and sea animals from various continents.
