MFTA FIELD TRIPS

Tour the MFTA Reuse Facility

A field trip to MFTA gives your students the opportunity to visit NYC’s premier ReUse Facility, where everyone will  tour the art gallery and artist’s studio and then make an art project in our classrooms. During the trip, the students will have an art making experience using a wide variety of reusable materials. These hands-on activities are designed to integrate with your classroom curriculum and encourage Creative REuse back at your school. Classes are invited to bring lunches to eat in our classrooms at the end of the visit.

Offered weekly, Field Trips are two hours long, starting at 10:30 AM or 1:30 PM. Students are engaged from the minute they walk into MFTA until they complete their Creative REuse activity. See below for more info.
