4th Grad Field Trip 2019

Sparking curiosity and creativity in youth

In 2019, RAC began the Ypsilanti Community Schools 4th Grade Field Trips, a project to introduce the Fly Creativity Toolkit to all Ypsilanti students over the next 10 years. The first step was meeting with the teachers to design the field trip to Riverside Arts Center with them, explore the toolkits and answer questions prior to the event. Then, across 2 days in winter ’19, 300 4th graders from YCS schools visited RAC, participated in arts programs, danced, met our staff and teachers, created, painted and had a day of fun. After our day of activities at RAC, Staff and Teaching Artists visited each classroom to distribute toolkits to each and every 4th grader to take home and use with curriculum!
