Class Experience

The art instruction underscores environmental and sequencing components found in the text. Our learner’s comprehension of the book and it’s language will make itself known through their art making, while making room for extensive personal choice and styles. Additionally, students will be able to make an origami house, and plot out a miniature estate by the end of this class. The result is usually a mix of a sculpture/ diorama/ model.
It is not uncommon for participants to continue working on their projects well after the class has concluded 
One large piece of flat cardboard. One piece of card stock. Glue. Any desired markers, crayons

Extras are welcome! glitter glue, etc., old playdough or floam is highly recommended. Any kind of fabric, broken tennis ball, old toys, air dry clay, stickers, popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, straws, etc.,! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any supply questions. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
End of class project 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students may need assistance making a few small cuts during the early folding section of the course
The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton will be used as a spark for the course. It is not necessary that participants read this book before class, as we will integrate it into the instructional content.
