FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK -
ARCHITECTS IN SCHOOLS EXHIBIT
BEGINS FRIDAY, MAY 6

Eugene area elementary school students will showcase projects developed over the past few months during time spent with architects and other design professionals learning about architecture, engineering and design in the Architects in Schools Program. Projects will be on display beginning First Friday, May 6 with receptions from 5:30-8:00pm at the Octagon, Broadway Commerce Center and the Eugene Public Library.

The Architects in Schools program serves third through fifth grades and is administered by the Architecture Foundation of Oregon. The program is designed to develop an awareness of architectural and engineering elements and construction methods through classroom sessions, projects and field trips that enhance learning in language arts, social studies, math, science and other subjects.  The content is guided by an architectural curriculum specially prepared to create understanding and appreciation of the built environment in which the students live, learn, and play.
