This month, the AIACC introduces Kids Draw Architecture, a public outreach program based upon the successes of Kids Draw Architecture, Santa Barbara.
Saturday, September 23, many of the local chapters are participating. The event is for ages five and up. Attendees will learn the history about the structure, and meet architects who will be on hand to give tips and techniques when it comes to sketching.
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!
