Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara

Kids Draw Architecture


Every Spring

Since 1990, the Kids Draw Architecture (KDA) program has provided children in Santa Barbara with the opportunity to appreciate and sketch examples of prominent local architecture.

KDA sketch sessions are held each spring at different locations in Santa Barbara, usually historically significant buildings. Through the assistance and demonstration of drawing techniques by local architects, artists, designers, and other volunteers, children obtain a unique, hands-on learning experience.  

The KDA Calendar

An annual calendar is then produced to show case a representative cross-section of illustrations from all age groups and drawing abilities. This calendar is designed and sold every year to cover the costs of the event. Find out how you can become a sponsor of the Kids Draw Architecture calendar!
