Taliesin West Summer Camp

Taliesin WestThe Summer Art and Architecture Camps at Taliesin West, north of Ancala, encourage students to explore, create and design in a historic setting while giving students the opportunity to think and work outside the box.

“Nationwide studies have found that educational summer camps can improve a child’s performance in school, helping to avoid an average one-month, grade-level learning loss over summer break,” said DeDee Ludwig-Palit, director of education at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. “As part of our summer camp program, we add ‘art’ to STEM education and embrace STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math), which combines practical application of each discipline. Not only are these students learning the content areas of STEAM, but they are learning how to work alongside their peers and develop creative solutions to everyday problems.”

The summer camps uses the principles of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous organic architecture through applied science and art projects. Students are given design problems with real-world problems and are encouraged to come up with solutions through a unique architectural approach that employs all the STEAM principles. Maybe one of the students will be future architect of Scottsdale homes!

Full and half-day camps are offered to students in grades two through 12 throughout the summer. Summer camps include Architectural Discovery (grades two to four); Photographing Wright (grades seven to 12); Design Your Own Dream Space (grades five to eight); Wright for the Future (grades six to nine) and Designing for Mars (grades five to eight). Camp fees range from $250 to $350 for each of the five-day camps.
