The Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce the annual Kids Draw Architecture gallery exhibition, on view from Dec. 9 to Jan. 6.

The public is invited to attend a festive holiday reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 9 at the Architectural Foundation Gallery, in the historic Acheson House at 229 E. Victoria St. in Santa Barbar. Refreshments will be served.

2012 Kids Draw Architecture calendars containing selected children’s drawings are now available for purchase, and will also be available during the event. KDA calendar locations include Chaucers Book Store, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Book Den and the Architectural Foundation.

This year’s sketch sessions were held at Lotusland, the Santa Barbara Mission and the Lobero Theater. The youths’ drawings reflect the architectural styles of these beautiful historic buildings and gardens.

Celebrating a tradition of more than 20 years, the Kids Draw Architecture program brings together professional architects and artists to sketch significant buildings with Santa Barbara County children of all ages. KDA was developed by the Architectural Foundation to enrich community awareness of the built environment by encouraging young people to sketch our architectural landmarks.

Architectural Foundation Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and by appointment.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
