Field Trips for Title 1 Schools

Quotation Mark

“That child [on an Act One field trip] sitting in the audience, experiencing something for the first time. Imagine what’s happening. They see a color, they see a movement, they hear a note. They hear a story that is new to them. That opens them up. That pushes at their imagination. That flexes that muscle of openness. It’s a muscle that they can nurture their whole lives.”

— Dr. Steven Tepper, Dean, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, ASU
