Frank Lloyd Wright
Virtual Classroom

During the Covid-19 shutdown, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s education team developed some fun, easy sets of activities to do at home based on Wright’s famed principles of organic architecture and solutions-based design.

Parents can simply have their child learn and complete online activities on his or her own while the parent works or tends to household duties. The projects are designed for learning at any pace and can be completed multiple times. Parents can also get in on the fun and make the activity into a family project!

The Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Classroom posts new mini activities, question prompts, or projects each week on Wednesday through the Foundation’s social media platforms.

Are you a teacher? The Virtual Classroom has virtual field trips of Taliesin West and ready-to-go learning packets available for your students!
