MASON CITY — A Frank Lloyd Wright workshop for teachers will be held this summer at the Historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City.
“Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School in the Midwest” is the subject of the workshop funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks.
It is designed specifically for teachers, said Pat Schultz, executive director of Wright on the Park Inc. which is host for the workshop.
Schultz said it will feature leading experts on Wright and on Prairie School architecture, landscaping and interior design.
There will be tours of significant Prairie School sites. Also, there will be time set aside to work with educators to develop curriculum using architecture to teach history, culture and art.
Teachers each will receive a $1,200 stipend to help offset the cost of attending the workshop which will be offered two times: July 14-19 and Aug. 4-9.
Applications must be in by March 4. Further information is available at www.wrightonthepark.or or by contacting Schultz at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 641-423-0689.
