Field Trips for Title 1 Schools
We’re getting ready for the 2019-20 field trip year! Thanks to all the teachers who brought their students on arts field trips during the 2018-19 school year! In total, Act One brought more than 43,000 students and their chaperones on 256 individual field trips. We believe that every child should have educational opportunities that include professional arts experiences. By providing field trips for students from Title 1 schools, Act One opens a world for students from low-income families.Field Trips

“… there is never a bad time to engage in art, but there is a best time. And that best time is as a child. And that’s where Act One comes in. That’s where Act One connects the education and the art to improve the brain health of all of our kids in our community, regardless of the opportunities that they have.”
