Kids Draw Architecture

AIA Long Beach/South Bay Chapter Hosts a Free Event for Kids to Learn and Sketch

for kids of all ages to attend and learn about architecture while honing their creative skills

This educational program was originally created in 1988 by the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara – AIASB’s “sister organization” – as a way to both connect architects with children and their parents and to acquire appreciation for architecture and the built environment. Now after almost 30 years and much success, KDA is now being offered at a state-wide level. We invite the public to the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library, 5870 Atlantic Ave. Long Beach, CA 90805 (http://www.lbpl.org/locations/michelle_obama/default.asp).  Attendees will learn about the structure and the history, be provided all supplies, and meet architects who will help participants sketch the scene.

As architects, sketching is a necessary component of the thought process. But sketching, and art in general, is important for many reasons, and affects how the brain thinks—compartmentalizes, and sees the world. Sketching allows one to focus and see things previously unnoticed in the built environment. The result is a better understanding of the various aspects of architecture – functionality, artistry and importance and demonstrates to our youth that sketching is an imperative honed skill, and that architecture is a functional art.

To that end, we invite all to bring your creativity and your curiosity and come sketch with the architects!
