Architecture: K-12 invites the community to explore, create and learn about the value of architecture through youth and family program opportunities. We host Architecture in Schools as part of AISD’s Prime Time after-school program offered in Title 1 schools. We are also offering Box City at Earth Day and Family Workshops at the Center, both great activities for children 12 and under. If you are interested in teaching children about architecture, your involvement is valued at any level!
