Arts in Education

Field Trips

Each year, the Creative Arts Guild is able to offer unique and inspiring field trips for students in the local area. These day trips allow young people to experience special concerts, exhibits and other art performances that are provided through an Arts in Education Grant. This year's school field trips are described below.

The Little Mermaid

Set above and under the high seas, The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel, a young mermaid who’s got a thing for disobeying the rules and following her own heart. Ariel’s fascination with humans often leads her to the sea’s surface, a zone that’s designated as “off- limits” by her father Triton, the sea king. One day while sneaking to the surface, Ariel witnesses a shipwreck and rescues Prince Eric, with whom she becomes instantly smitten. Furious at Triton’s inability to understand her love for the prince, Ariel runs away and strikes a deal with Ursula, Triton’s evil sister, to experience the life she dreams of on land.
