Art Center of the Bluegrass, Inc.

Log Number: MA-15-19-0040-19

The Art Center of the Bluegrass will expand its free field trip program, providing arts education experiences to 1,000 underserved students in Boyle County, Kentucky. The museum will partner with the Boyle County Schools, the Danville Independent School District, and the Kentucky School for the Deaf to promote participation and to ensure that the programs align with the state's Standards for Arts and Humanities. Each museum visit will include a gallery walk with a professional artist and conversations with students. Then, students will be given the opportunity to create their own age- and skill-level-appropriate art in response to the exhibited artwork. The museum will evaluate the success of the program in building arts literacy through both educator and student feedback forms.
