dreamARCHITECTURE Birmingham- 2023 Theme: Draw Your DREAM HOME!

Our elementary school outreach program, dreamARCHITECTURE, is an annual art competition that encourages K-5 children to think about their built environment. Contest themes vary each year, allowing students to express their creativity through drawing their dream house, zoo, park and more.
