Enhancing ArtPrize with education

Kids complete crafts at the Grand Rapids Art Museum

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) ArtPrize brings so much talent to West Michigan, but behind nearly every artist is a dedicated art educator. ArtPrize and the Grand Rapids Art Museum are working together to help make the art competition a learning experience for young and old.

Drop-in Family Activities

Kids and adults can celebrate the creativity and innovation all around Grand Rapids during ArtPrize with hands-on activities every weekend during ArtPrize. Come out for different themes inspired by art at the GRAM. Educators break down the elements of artwork and use them to teach art to children. Drop-in Family Activities are Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free with general admission.
