Winter/Spring 2024 Series:

The Winter/Spring 2024 Teen Workshops will focus on developing fundamental architectural design skills and exploring the architecture of New York City. Each workshop focuses on a different core lesson that will help high school students explore their interest in architecture as well as hone skills that will be helpful for portfolio development. These workshops are open to all levels of architecture and art experience. Attend all four sessions, or just select the workshops that appeal most to you!

Drawing History:

Preservation architects unite old technologies and techniques with new ones, bringing new life to historic buildings. In this workshop, students will explore the historic Jefferson Market Library from top to bottom (the building’s clock tower is a Greenwich Village landmark) and learn about how the building was transformed from a courthouse to a library through adaptive reuse over a generation ago.

Through a tour of recent renovations, we will learn about the library’s past, present and future. Students will make drawings and sketches of details that will help stitch together the building’s rich history.

All materials will be provided. Lunch will not be provided. All students will be dismissed for a lunch break from 12–1pm. Students may bring lunch to eat at the Center if desired.


Need-based partial scholarships are available.
