Dream House

Students build their ‘dream house’ then draw it using observation drawing.


In this lesson, artists begin the process of designing their ‘dream house’. They start

out by building the basic shape of their dream house using paper cups


In this lesson, student artists make an observation drawing using the cup house that they built during lesson 1.


In this lesson, student artists imagine what their dream house would look like, then add details to their observation drawing from the previous lesson to turn it into the abode of their choice.


In this lesson, student artists color their dream homes using watercolor, markers, and oil pastels. They are introduced to and encouraged to use warm and cool colors to describe the environment that their house is in.
