ArtPrize Partner Schools

ArtPrize supports and activates field trip experiences for more than 200 schools from around the state of Michigan (and beyond), but only a few schools are selected as ArtPrize Partner Schools.

ArtPrize Partner Schools model progressive approaches to teaching and learning, and work closely with ArtPrize year-round to design best-practice resources and deepen their students' ArtPrize experience within the classroom​.

2016 ArtPrize Partner Schools include:

Partners must all be located within the city of Grand Rapids or serve Grand Rapids youth, and must also​demonstrate a need for increased transportation and program registration support.
