Julia's Vacation

Learn about Julia Morgan, RAM's architect, in this chalk-filled activity. Julia has completed over 700 buildings throughout her career. We think it’s time for her to go on vacation. Get ready to draw the vacation of your imagination for Julia to enjoy.

Jekel’s Studio

Learn about the architect and use string to create a new look for Henry L. A. Jekel’s studio and home.  

Principles of Design: Emphasis

Learn how artists have used the principles of design in their work. We’ll look at Emphasis in artist Brenna Youngblood’s artwork and create a collage of your own.

Don’t Overthink the Drawing

Get creative as we challenge you with three words to incorporate in a drawing of your own.
