Field trips generously sponsored by SEI Cares
First Folios, our 2020 educational art exhibit, will showcase art inspired by books. As part of this exhibit, we are are offering free field trips to local schools. Each field trip for First Folios lasts 2 hours and begins with an interactive discussion on the life and work of an author or illustrator. Our goal is to highlight local and underrepresented authors. Students then participate in a scavenger hunt, with the answers being found in the artwork in the exhibit. Finally the students will participate in a fun art activity, creating a one of a kind piece of art to take home with them. All field trips are tailored to be age-appropriate for the students who are visiting.
Thanks to a generous grant from the SEI Cares foundation, we are able to offer free bus transportation to a limited number of trips. Each field trip includes one standard school bus. (If you have students with mobility issues who need different transportation, please specify when applying and we will do our best to accommodate these needs.)
Field trips are offered in the morning on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the show. (If those days and times will not work, please contact us. We will do our best to accommodate you, but please be aware we are very limited outside of the posted field trip times.) Please see below for the current available time slots. Groups are welcome to bring a lunch and eat in our facility after the field trip is finished. Due to the way this field trip is organized as well as available space in our facility, we can only accommodate a maximum of 50 students per field trip.
