This summer, PVSchools high school students will have a opportunity to participate in two unique summer programs that will cultivate a passion for art and architecture.

High school students will be able to work with professional artists of Cosanti, a Paolo Soleri Studio, while forging an understanding of sustainable urban landscapes. Students enrolled in the Art of Cosanti, which will be held at the Cosanti studio and Horizon High School, will be able to construct and cast original ceramic bells, be thoroughly introduced to the bronze casting techniques and cast a cement bench.

Additionally, students enrolled in the Frank Lloyd Wright Engineering and Design summer program will have the opportunity to work at Taliesin West, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Students will learn the importance of using natural materials, form, lines and color to create a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design. Instruction for the class will take place at both Taliesin West and in the CREST classrooms at Paradise Valley High School.
