Event Navigation

In this introductory workshop catering to our youngest creatives, participants will engage in the basic elements of architecture and design as they explore the natural and built environment of the Taliesin estate through interactive virtual and hands-on activities.

Infused with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), this workshop will explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles of design and how he used nature as inspiration.

Throughout the week, students will apply what they discover and learn in a variety of hands-on design projects; experimenting with line, shape, form, space, abstraction, and the fun, creative use of materials.

Most necessary materials will be mailed to families.

Technology required:

Reliable Internet access

Computer, laptop, tablet, or cell phone with speakers, microphone, and camera capabilities.

Supplies needed:

Ruler, Elmers School Glue, Glue stick, pencils, eraser, plain printer paper, clear tape, and colored pencils. We will provide all other supplies in a box mailed to you before camp.

Time Commitment:

Monday-Friday 9:30-11:30 am session with live instruction. Campers should plan on up to two hours each day outside of scheduled class time to work on creative off-screen activities in the afternoon.
