Throughout time, people have been fascinated by miniatures: Teeny houses; tiny furniture, dishes, and plates; minuscule people and animals. This week, we’ll learn about artists who create amazing miniature environments. Then, we’ll design and create our own imaginative (toy-sized) worlds using a rich variety of materials including recycled wood scraps, cardboard, and clay.

What will you dream up?
