Arts Enrichment Field Trip Program
Through field trips to cultural institutions, performances and exhibitions, Project Create encourages our students to be active participants in the arts, which allows them access, experience, discourse, and ownership. Our students actively participate in culture, not just as audience members but as creators of art and members of cultural spaces. Visiting cultural institutions and interacting with artists and arts organizations give our students inspiration and confidence with regard to their own development and opportunities. Our students are empowered to gain intellectual ownership of the arts and actively participate in the production of culture, as artists, as curators, or critics. Our ability to transport our students, thanks to our new van (courtesy of the Philip L. Graham Fund), has allowed us to expand our field trip program.
