FDR – A History Lesson in Miniature

FDR – A History Lesson in Miniature   Using Miniatures for Education This project was inspired by the sculpture of Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) by Terrible Kids Stuff. Not only was the unique approach to the subject matter captivating, but the immersion into the history of the character became a journey in itself. I decided that in my research of the character, I wanted to embed some of those facts into the piece.
