My Students

Our middle school is located in one of the official cultural districts of Cape Cod. There are multiple galleries, nonprofits, theaters, and small businesses that are invested in keeping art a part of the daily lives of our community.

We at NRMS believe that art has the ability to make change, inspire individuals, and provide coping skills for young artists.

We work as a team to bring high level artists to the school to work with our students, and we actively share our work with the community around us. We love art in all of its many forms and are grateful to have a supporting community that does as well.

My Project

Students are learning how to create model homes using online software in a combined project between MakerSpace and Art and Design. We want students to create the actual model to scale using these art and modeling supplies. We need model birch plywood, Sharpies, motors, battery backs and pencils. Students will use their online blueprints to create to scale models of their tiny homes. They will add lights and moving components to their homes using the electronic components.

Our vision is that when everything is assembled together, we can show how we can better protect our environment by living on a smaller footprint.

We live in an area where conservation and limitation of available land is important to recognize. We do not want to overcrowd the land. We know that by building smaller and employing green building techniques, we can show how to make this area more affordable for low income families while still protecting a fragile environment.
