The School of Constructive Arts is a field-school teaching design, building, and ecology through direct participation and experimentation. Our approach combines ancestral knowledge of natural materials and energy with advancing technology and contemporary building techniques to derive sustainable models of living for our time.

We are currently building our campus in the Big Bend region of Texas. The workshops, residences, and land here will allow us to support hands-on educational programs and individual research and experimentation. In tandem with this site-specific laboratory for direct study, SCA seeks to provide an open, online resource democratizing the tools of environmental design, preserving endangered knowledge, and empowering people to sustainably derive quality food and shelter from the earth.

To learn more about our philosophy and long-term vision please see our PROSPECTUS.
