Wright Experiences

The Martin House has a remedy for kids' cabin fever this season:  two events in our "Wright Experiences" series to help defrost their creativity.

On February 4th from 1 - 4 PM, we'll offer Exploring Japanese Influences on Frank Lloyd Wright Using Mixed Media.  Participants (age 8 and older) will receive an introduction to Japanese art and architecture and its influence on the design of Frank Lloyd Wright, then enjoy experimenting with these aesthetics through calligraphy, origami and book making.  They'll even create a stenciled Japanese wind sock!

Then on March 3rd (1 - 4 PM), join us for Picturing the Wright Site, a photography workshop for kids.  They'll enjoy an exclusive opportunity to experience the Martin House complex from a photographer's perspective, working with professional and experienced photographers to learn basic photographic techniques and compositional skills.  They'll also receive a friendly critique of their own unique photographs.  Participants will find themselves looking at the Martin House in a whole new light!

Please visit the "Events" section of the MHRC website for more details on these upcoming sessions, including fees and material requirements.  Space is limited, so act soon.  And save the dates for our Wright Summer Experiences, July 16 - 20 and 23 - 27.  Two groups (one for students entering grades 3 and 4, and the other for those entering grades 5 and 6) will run concurrently, with the option to take the first week, second week, or both!  Stay tuned to the Weekly Wright-up and our website for more details.
