Bring the excitement and enrichment of a Student Day Workshop directly to your classroom or home! Student Day workshops will be offered virtually during school year 20-21 as one-hour live, interactive sessions led by a CFA Design Educator. Students will explore the focus topic through inquiry-based investigations of architectural examples, and drawing, movement and/or design activities. Programs are adapted to meet the abilities of your K-12 class and conclude with demonstrations of suggested hands-on design projects that students can complete on their own with simple materials.
Deepen student learning by booking an additional Follow-Up Design Workshop where a CFA Educator guides students through a hands-on design project related to the Student Day theme. Design Workshops must be booked in conjunction with a Student Day program. Schools are expected to provide basic supplies such as glue, scissors, pencils, rulers, markers/crayons and construction paper. An additional per student materials fee may also apply.
All programs include a downloadable Resource Packet with additional information and activities to help you connect the program to your curriculum and explore the topic in greater depth.
Program cost is $200 per class (30 participants max) for a Student Day or Follow-Up Design workshop. NYC public schools are $150 per workshop; Title One schools are $100 per workshop. Programs are conducted on CFA’s Zoom account.
