Life Drawing at Lake|Flato

Posted by on 7/16/12 at 11:35am

Last week we had our first life-drawing class here at Lake|Flato! Starting with a longer 8 minute pose, we gradually worked our way down to 10 seconds.

We will be doing this every week, space and schedule permitting. Hope to see you next time! Click to Read More

Posted by on 6/4/12 at 03:39pm

This past school year a team of 6th grade entrepreneurs / venture capitalists formed a strategic alliance with Lake Flato to work on the design of some major new civic architecture that is being called a “game changer” for the AEC industry.
