PARENTS AND TEACHERS – FIELD TRIP ROUTE FOR ELEMENTARY KIDS – ARTPRIZE 2017
ArtPrize runs SEPTEMBER 20 – OCTOBER 8, 2017
ARTPRIZE wants to help you CUSTOMIZE your Field Trip
DIY Field Trips to ArtPrize
Most school field trips to ArtPrize start near the Grand Rapids Public Museum. That’s a great place for buses to load/unload. That’s #4 on the Artprize Family Experience Map. Use the map in conjunction with our Art List and you’ll be all set for a great DIY field trip to ArtPrize.
Let our list and map help you navigate ArtPrize in 2017 with your field trip students and school kids!
Our route will keep you out of tight spaces (for the most part – the Women’s City Club is comprised of small rooms) and make it easy for you navigate with a group without losing anyone. We chose many venues that are outdoors, offering lots of space, and are usually accessible to large groups (GR Ford Museum, Public Museum, Children’s Museum). We also choose venues (like DeVos Hall) that open before the standard noon or 5:00 pm start time for ArtPrize, making those morning field trips a possibility.
This whole route will take you about 3 hours if you’re moving along. It’s probably too much to fit into one field trip – you will want to pick and choose your destinations based on group age, interest, and weather conditions. You can easily modify the route by cutting off portions or extend the route by lingering in venues like DeVos hall. Some of the venues are indoors, which is nice if the weather isn’t so great.
Also be sure to make use of the PRINTABLE map and ART LIST that are available below. There’s also a list of FIELD TRIP QUESTIONS to jump start your conversations while out and about.
