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​.

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. Interested in becoming an ArtPrize Partner School? Contact becca@artprize.org.
