Arts education has the ability to take students beyond the standard classroom environment through active and engaged learning practices. Whether it be virtual reality, digital platforms, or real-time in-person field trips, this type of approach to teaching and learning through the arts is an essential component of a well-rounded education. For students, it has the ability to enhance their imagination, memory, physical senses, while building confidence, communication skills, and focus. Field trips provide an opportunity for students to see the world in a new way offering cultural connections and a greater relationship to one’s own community. Act One partners with Title 1 schools and arts organizations to help coordinate these meaningful and powerful connections.
