Programs for Educators & Classes
This Taliesin tour experience created especially for K-12 educators brings Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture alive for teachers. We offer inspiration on how to bring architecture and design back to the classroom and to tie them to existing core classes to educators and their students, the future stewards of the built environment. Contact us to schedule.
Hillside Home School Class Experience
This one-hour Hillside Home School tour with an optional additional activity is designed for K-12 class field trips to the Hillside Home School at Taliesin. A revolutionary design for Wright, Hillside was built on three levels to follow the natural slope of the hill it rests upon. Built in 1902 as a boarding school for his two aunts, it houses a theater and 5,000 square foot drafting studio and still operates as a school of architecture today! Contact us to schedule.
Taliesin Class Experience
This one-hour tour of the Taliesin residence with an optional additional activity is designed for Grade 6-12 class field trips. Begun in 1911, Taliesin was Wright’s home for 50 years, and the place where he would design his most masterful works. Experience the courtyards and gardens, Wright’s drafting studio, and iconic Living Room. Contact us to schedule.
A Day at Taliesin
This immersive educational experience for K-12 classes will be customized to take advantage of the architectural, natural, or agricultural areas of the Taliesin estate. Groups may explore Wright’s architecture and focus primarily on design; or groups may hike Taliesin’s trails and focus on the native geology, prairies, and oak savannah; or groups may experience a day at the Taliesin farm. The estate is an inspirational setting for classes in which students sketch, paint, write or photograph. Contact us to schedule.
