Field Trips

Art Class

We are thrilled to offer three engaging field trip experiences designed to cater to different grade levels - grades 1-5, 6-8, and 9-12. These enriching field trips are completely free and provide an opportunity for students to discover the dynamic world of ArtPrize. Led by knowledgeable guides, participants will embark on captivating guided tours, exploring a diverse array of artworks exhibited throughout the city.


During these tours, students will sharpen their critical thinking and visual literacy skills while formulating their interpretations of the art. As an added bonus, skilled artists and educators will lead hands-on art experiences, encouraging students to unleash their creativity and experiment with various techniques and materials. These field trips aim to spark curiosity, foster artistic expression, and offer holistic learning beyond the classroom setting.


Both Cultivate and ArtPrize prioritize inclusivity, ensuring that these experiences align with curricula and encourage interdisciplinary learning, making them a truly enriching educational opportunity for all students.
