Welcome to the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Classroom

The Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Classroom is a resource center developed by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s education department as a free online learning tool for K-12 students and virtual engagement for families.

The Virtual Classroom combines fun, real-world lessons with Wright’s famed principles of organic architecture and solutions-based design. Each STEAM-focused activity will offer students hands-on projects that encourage creative and critical thinking.

Teaching STEM and architecture in your classroom? We welcome you to use our activity guides, available below. Also, make sure to visit our 3D Tour of Taliesin West

We enjoy seeing your work. Share your activity drawings and projects with us on the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Facebook page or email them to us at

Additionally, all of the activities will stay here in the Virtual Classroom to work on in the future. If you wish to try any of the activities again or work on them at your own pace, simply click on the activity links and enjoy!

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Education Activity Kit


The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Education Activity Kit provides a fun way to have Wright-inspired tools and supplies at home for the K-12 Virtual activities offered here in the Virtual Classroom! It’s a fun care package for all of us who love Frank Lloyd Wright, architecture, and design. The kit includes: two books, Who Built That? Modern Houses and Taliesin West Desert Laboratory Guidebook; a 24-pack of colored pencils with sharpener; a handy Alumidrafter measuring tool featuring an inspiring Wright quote; decorative origami paper; and two stickers representing iconic landmarks found at Taliesin West: the red “Whirling Arrow” logo, and the dragon, fashioned after the beloved fire-breathing sculpture on the property.

Warning: grown-ups will be tempted to borrow these prized kit supplies too!
