ABC Story Hour: Architecture, Books, and Crafts
October 14, 2023
Taliesin West offers a STEAM based story and craft hour, FREE of charge for our youngest visitors and their parents or guardians. This program is taught in our outdoor classroom so that children can be inspired by the same Sonoran Desert landscape that sparked Frank Lloyd Wright’s imagination 80 years ago.
The selected book this month is “The Shape of the World: A Portrait of Frank Lloyd Wright.” When Frank Lloyd Wright was a baby, his mother dreamed that he would become a great architect. She gave him blocks to play with and he learned that shapes are made up of many other shapes. As he grew up, he loved finding shapes in nature. Wright went on to study architecture and create buildings that were one with the natural world around them. He became known as one of the greatest American architects of all time.
This program is geared toward children aged 4-8; however, all are welcome and encouraged to attend! Registration for ALL guests attending the program is required.
9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Free with reservation
