Bring L.A. history to your students with one of our interactive multi-sessionin-person and virtualworkshops! 

Led by Conservancy educators, workshops incorporate strategies designed to enhance engagement and learning.
Each lesson supports California's Common Core Standards in History and Social Studies.
Adventures in Architecture
Over the course of three-to-six sessions, Adventures in Architectures introduces students to historic and culturally significant sites in a historic neighborhood. The workshops examine the question: What makes a community? We take students on guided explorations, facilitate activities that connect students to local history, and build an understanding of preservation. Learn more about Adventures in Architecture. »
