Heidelberg Houses

Program description

Students are introduced to The Heidelberg Project in Detroit MI by artist Tyree Guyton, and create their own mini houses reflecting who they are and where they come from.  In three steps, students learn about the artist and his project, use paper mache paste and various images to cover their carton with images reflecting themselves, and utilize various materials to embellish and add final details. These homes can be a springboard for a writing lesson as well.
