Field Trips

The Arts @ Large Community Center is the perfect destination for school field trips. Our state-of-the-art facility is a welcoming place for students and teachers, complete with an exhibition gallery, two art studios and performance stage. Exhibitions transition quarterly, bringing in new content to discover and explore. Students participate in research, analysis and art-making, using the exhibit to guide them. Performances by local artists can also be scheduled to entertain and spark creativity. We tailor field trip experiences to engage your unique classroom.
