That's One Big Dragon!

This is one BIG origami dragon.  Look at that monster!  I haven't ever done an official post on the origami dragons, and I will [soon], but I just got this one up and wanted to show it off.
Another view, even though it doesn't all fit in frame:

And the beautiful thing is it was made [mostly] by ONE STUDENT.  Yep, that's right.  That dream student: she's interesting, funny, (though pretty quiet) and comes to art with her head full of ideas.  I love her.  And I'm so sad that this is my last year with her as she moves on to middle school next year.  This happy art teacher will be shedding some tears at the end of this year.  Another awesome thing about the class she's in: there's another student (a boy) who's super into art as well, and they really push each other in a totally cool sort of way.  His dragon body is really long too, but he let a bunch of other boys attach their dragon heads (and small bodies) to his and so it was a little more difficult to hang.  But I'm sure I'll post pictures of that one with my how-to-make-an-origami-dragon post.
One last picture of her dragon:

The wings were totally her idea and she designed and made them all on her own.
