Professional Development for Teachers
Learn architectural terms, read a building, ask the questions that get your students excited about architecture. Our professional development workshops use Frank Lloyd Wright’s work as the focus for learning and talking about architecture, history, and social change. We can provide half-day, full-day, or multi-day sessions. Participants can earn CPDUs. Call the Education Department at 312-994-4030 for fee structure. Recommended for K-8 teachers.
Join the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust's education department at our Educator Open Houses or Professional Development Workshops to learn about incorporating lessons on architecture in your classroom. Please return to this page to see upcoming professional development programs.
Teacher Workshop: Influence and Creation in Art
Presented by the Smart Museum of Art and the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust, this workshop explores the influence of Japanese prints and art on Frank Lloyd Wright’s design style. A tour of the Smart’s current exhibition Awash in Color: French and Japanese Prints will be followed by a presentation by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust on their Focus on Japan in-school program. During the Preservation Trust’s Focus on Japan program, students discover Wright’s Japanese influence focusing on his print collections. This 8-10 session project enables students to design, draw, and carve their own print. The workshop will conclude with a discussion about how modern artists find inspiration and a printmaking activity. CPDUs available.
