“Architecture is that great living creative spirit which from generation to generation, from age to age, proceeds, persists, creates, according to the nature of man, and his circumstances as they change. That really is architecture.” Frank Lloyd Wright
Students participating in our educational programming will come to understand architecture as a profession of its time and place.
Inspired by the Taliesin estate and Frank Lloyd Wright’s example, we will ask students to share what questions occupy their minds today and how their needs, wants, and hopes could be embedded into a physical space that is (W)right for them.
Students will create, build models, sketch, and showcase their work, which will require observation, critical thinking, and spatial planning skills. Students will practice graciously giving and receiving feedback on each other’s designs during our studio critiques.
Taliesin virtual education opportunities — either in summer camps or through the virtual classroom — will be a hybrid of live virtual sessions and off-screen activities that will engage participants in a community of their peers through interactive video conferences, hands-on activities, a digital portfolio, and both live and recorded instruction.
These experiences will be deeply rooted in the tradition of community building and hands-on learning here at Taliesin. They will include mindfulness activities, team-building experiences, and participation in the creative design process, including presenting and critiquing each other's work.
Students will learn about the history and architecture of Taliesin and will participate in activities to hone their own creative design skills.
TALIESIN VIRTUAL CAMP SESSIONS 2021
A box of materials will be mailed to students with all necessary supplies to participate in the hands-on activities. Students will be encouraged to share pictures and videos of their creations on a digital platform so that fellow campers and instructors can comment and provide feedback.
Camps are designed for small groups (15) to enhance the learning experience and foster bonds between campers and instructors.
Scholarships are available.
Scholarships are available for Virtual camp and will be $110 each. To be considered for a scholarship, please fill out and return the application to Caroline Hamblen by May 15, 2021.
