Dream Tiny House Models

My students need self-drying clay, polymer clay, and foam core board.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students have amazing imaginations. Last year we used recycled materials to create dream bedrooms. Their creativity and ability to repurpose materials is astonishing.

My fifth and sixth grade students will work on this project during their 30 minute per week art class.

They will also be responsible for researching the pros and cons of tiny house living. Since there is no designated art room, the work will remain in the classroom where the children will be able to add details if they have any down time.

My Project

My students need self drying clay, polymer clay and foam core board. My students will draw a plan and then create a model tiny house, using foam core board as the basic structure and model magic clay and polymer clay for fixtures and details. During periodic critiques, they will adjust their plan. While being challenged to create a living space in such a small area, they will also learn about the benefits of having a smaller environmental footprint. We will also use recycled materials to enhance their designs.

The materials will help this my students to be successful in this project, because they will allow them to create sturdy structures of their models.

The colorful model magic and polymer clay will provide an opportunity for them to experiment with color interaction. I would like this experience to help my students see alternative possibilities for their future homes, that include beauty and practicality while considering their impact on the environment.
