Frank Lloyd Wright became a great architect by using his love of nature’s colors and shapes in his ground-breaking designs. This unique camp will take place at Windy Knoll Farm in Nokesville. Students will learn about Wright’s life and vision as they directly experience the powerful inspiration of the natural world. Art activities will explore the hidden geometric shapes within nature and various works of art. Experimenting with different art media, students will learn to illustrate 3–D forms, depicting objects in proportion. The incorporation of symmetry, asymmetry and pattern will be studied and applied to both architectural and abstract forms of art.

Camp fee includes $25.00 Supply fee.
