Growing Young Minds

The Grand Rapids Art Museum’s Field Trip Fund advances equitable learning through accessible art experiences by removing financial barriers and promoting accessibility to the visual arts for Michigan students.

For eligible PreK-12 schools, GRAM’s Field Trip Fund covers student admission and participation fees for school tours and art-making workshops and provides transportation reimbursement to assist with bus expenses.

The per unit cost is $16/student. This includes everything (hard costs, transportation, staff time, overhead).

Through these interactive experiences, students will engage in transformative cultural experiences that inspire creativity, critical thinking, constructive dialogue, empathy, and self-expression.
