Eagle Rock Architect Gives New Meaning to “Back to School”

  • Architect Jeff Winston returns to Eagle Rock School after nearly three decades
  • Winston to serve as co-instructor of new Eagle Rock class

Estes Park, Colo., March 6, 2017 — Architect Jeff Winston of MIG is returning to Eagle Rock School & Professional Development Center to co-instruct an architecture class for Eagle Rock students. Winston was part of the original team of architects who designed Eagle Rock in the early 1990s.

“We’re thrilled to have Jeff Winston back on campus,” said Jeff Liddle, head of Eagle Rock School. “His connection to Eagle Rock combined with his knowledge of architecture will provide a unique learning experience for our students.”

Winston will co-instruct a five week long class focused on how creativity, algebraic thinking, and intentional design allow people to create spaces that enhance their lives. The course will challenge students to critically reflect on their experience of the form and function of spaces. Students will critique design ideas and develop new approaches to problems. They will be encouraged to use algebraic reasoning to meet budget and design parameters for a realistic architectural proposal. The curriculum is designed for students to work productively as individuals and collaboratively in groups.

Eagle Rock implements effective and engaging practices that foster each student’s unique potential and help young people use their minds. For more information, visit
