The Art of Tyrannosaurus
and Other Dinosaurs

An important part of UCMP's T. rex Expo was the Drawings and Stories Contest for children in grades K–5. Children from schools in the Berkeley area were asked to "Draw a Diplodocus" or "Tell a Tale of T. rex." We received numerous excellent drawings of a wide variety of dinosaurs and other prehistoric critters. We can't exhibit every one of them, but here are some of the prize-winning drawings from our contest.
