At a Glance

Rediscover your love of drawing, sprinkled with a little history for good measure. Join architect Mark Keane for a hands-on experience learning to sketch Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House. Find out how a young college drop-out from a small town in south central Wisconsin became known as one of the four modern masters of architecture in the 20th century. Frank Lloyd Wright was designing masterpieces even before the Modern Movement began. The Frederick C. Robie House — a World Heritage site — is his greatest prairie home and one of Wright’s 1,100 buildings. To make the most out of this lesson, visit for important resources and details.
