Arts Focused Field Trips

November 10, 2018

A close look in Atlanta

The Brown Center Chalkboard published an article written by Jay P. Greene, a professor of education reform at the University of Arkansas, that included the research on what students are gaining from arts experiences during field trips. Up until recently there has been little evidence on the impact of out-of-school field trips has on students.

The study was funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and was focused on Atlanta, specifically on field trips to the Woodruff Arts Center, located there. The center houses the High Art Museum, Alliance Theater, and the Atlanta Symphony. The study looks closely at trips taken by grade 4 and 5 students to these venues. The students will continue to be tracked over time.
