This event has passed.

From caves, rivers, and forests, to oceans, deserts, farms, and even our own houses, animal habitats come in all shapes and sizes! During this workshop, youth ages 5-10 will design and build a home for their favorite animal. They'll consider the animal's needs and its unique environment to create a home that keeps the animal happy and healthy. At the end of the workshop, kids take their creations home with them! 

Designed with younger children in mind (ages 5-10 with a chaperone), our family workshops encourage children and their caregivers to explore architecture through hands-on activities. Workshops begin with an exploration of exciting examples of architecture and activities that highlight the design process. Then, the kids are off—designing and building their own structures in a whirlwind two-hour workshop that culminates in a group presentation. 

SAF offers no-questions-asked scholarships for all our Family Programs. Please contact to inquire.
