The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture was formally initiated in 1932 when twenty-three apprentices came to live and learn at Taliesin. The sources of this educational philosophy have roots that go back much further than the '30s. The program of the School, while remaining remarkably true to its heritage, has evolved through experience and the need to address changing times. In 1931 Frank and Olgivanna Lloyd Wright circulated a prospectus to an international group of distinguished scholars, artists, and friends, announcing their plan to form a school at Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin to "Learn by Doing." "The fine arts, so called," they asserted, "should stand at the center as inspiration grouped about architecture . . . . (of which landscape and the decorative arts would be a division)." Education at Taliesin would emphasize painting, sculpture, music, drama, and dance "in their places as divisions of architecture."
