dreamARCHITECTURE 2023: Draw Your DREAM HOME!

Registration info can be found below.
(BE SURE TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT CITY!)

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. This wildly successful program sees participation from nearly 2,000 area children in Birmingham each year. In 2015, we expanded our program to serve schools in the Huntsville and Mobile areas.
