Naturally Inspired Architecture, Grades K-3
Engage your child’s natural curiosity!  Architects and designers have long been inspired by the natural world. This architecture class explores natural forms and systems and how they help us to design our built environment.  Students will learn basic architectural vocabulary and skills.

Inspired Design, Grades 4-8
How did they think of that? From biological systems to geometric patterns, consider architecture’s many inspirations. Then, try your hand at some inspired designs of your own.  Students will build their design vocabulary and create architectural drawings and models.

Architecture Skills Workshops, Grades 9-12
This program explores the many dimensions of architectural study and helps students build a design portfolio.  Beginning with an introduction to architecture and concluding with a portfolio-building session, this program features 6 additional stand-alone workshops taught by CMU faculty, graduate students, and local design professionals.  Topics include drawing in various media, visual storytelling, an introduction to landscape architecture, and writing for architects.  Participants are required to attend the first and last sessions, and then may choose to attend as many of the workshops as they would like.
