FROM BLOCKS TO ROCKS: DESIGN OUTSIDE THE BOX (AGES 8-11)
From Blocks to Rocks: Design Outside the Box is an introductory summer camp catering to our youngest creatives. Participants will engage with the essential elements of architecture and design as they explore the natural and built environment of the Taliesin estate through interactive, virtual, and hands-on activities. Infused with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), this workshop will explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles of design and his use of nature as inspiration.
June 14 @ 9:30 am - June 18 @ 11:00 am

DESIGN WITH A PRO: ADVANCED DIGITAL MODELING STUDIO (AGES 16+)
Taliesin is offering a two-week intermediate and advanced design studio that allows students/ adults to explore architecture as a profession. Taught by a professional architect trained at Taliesin, this studio engages students in exploring design in a digital environment.
Students/adults will learn the basics of digital modeling while incorporating principles of organic architecture into their own design. Students/adults will learn to troubleshoot, and problem solve as they work with new software in which they overcome the challenges of designing a 3-dimensional object on a 2-dimensional screen. Returning or more experienced students will get more individualized attention from the instructor to critique their designs and develop their designs and CAD modeling skills
July 12 @ 9:00 am - July 23 @ 3:00 pm

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: DESIGNING ARCHITECTURE WITH FOOD IN MIND (AGES 12-16)
Just like shelter — the basis of architecture — food, too, is fundamental to human existence. Foodways describe how we eat, celebrate, and gather around food; grow it, prepare it, and eat it. Cultures, traditions, historical events, social structures, and geographic features all play a role in our food choices and options.
In this virtual, weeklong summer camp, students will be empowered and guided to reimagine current foodways during individual design challenges that will result in their own architectural creation to address one element of foodways. Architecture is involved in the design of foodways: from community gardens and school gardens to small- or large-scale farms to farm stands, restaurants, markets, or processing and distribution centers.
