Read and Build is an exciting program for you and your young children (ages 3-6). Spend time together listening to a story and creating an art project. We'll help your little ones explore the building blocks of architecture, design and our city. We share a new story every month, so you can come again and again to work with others and build something amazing.

Notes:
  • Tickets for Read and Build may be purchased in advance or on the day of the event at the CAC box office.
  • Ticket price includes entrance to the Chicago Architecture Center on the day of the event.
  • Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
