Education Days presented by PNC Bank, brought over 15,000 students from 194 schools to explore, engage, and learn in meaningful ways during the ArtPrize event.
Education Days partner programs included 11 different arts and cultural institutions, partnering with ArtPrize to provide free art education programs for PK-12 classrooms and after-school programs. Along with partner programs, ArtPrize education staff and volunteers hosted educational programs for over 1,300 students during the event.
Over $8,000 in transportation grants were awarded to schools to help offset field trip costs.
Education Days online resources and lesson plans encouraged educators to deepen their students’ learning experience beyond their field trip, as a result, 75% of educators reported they incorporated ArtPrize into lesson plans or a pre/post classroom activity.
