Education

Frank Lloyd Wright changed the way we build and the way we live. We use Wright’s revolutionary design concepts and buildings at Taliesin West to educate and inspire people of all ages, challenging them to understand and embrace innovation in their own lives.

Frank Lloyd Wright
Virtual Classroom

During the Covid-19 shutdown, the Foundation’s education team and Paradise Valley Unified School District developed a fun, easy set of activities to do at home based on Wright’s famed principles of organic architecture and solutions-based design.

The six-week virtual series will introduce a new activity and corresponding video weekly, where one activity builds upon the next to culminate into a final project inspired by Wright’s renowned art glass!

Parents can simply turn on each video and have their child watch, learn, and complete the activity on his or her own while the parent works or tends to household duties. Parents can also get in on the fun and make the activity a family project!

Since 2012, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has worked alongside the Paradise Valley School District (PVUSD) to create K-12 curriculum that has been test-piloted across hundreds of students within the district. These Virtual Classroom activities draw from those learnings and programming.


 

Summer Camps:
Going Virtual

To continue with the Summer Camp tradition while keeping campers and staff safe, this popular program has been re-tooled as a virtual camp this year. Combining creativity with academic relevance, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s innovative Summer Art and Architecture Camps give students the opportunity to think and work outside the box. Virtual Camp will continue to encourage students to explore, create, and design.
