Waitlist for Free Field Trips

Visitors learn the art of reuse first hand as they tour the MFTA warehouse, explore our art gallery, and use their creativity to make artwork to take home. Field Trips are 90 minutes, with an optional additional 30 minutes for lunch. We can take two classes per day, starting at 10:30 or 1:30, on Mondays – Fridays. Field Trip class sizes are determined by your school class sizes.

Materials for the Arts cannot offer Free Field Trip Funding for Title 1 Schools at this time. If you would like to be considered for a school cancellation or an additional round of Free Field Trip Funding then please complete this Wait List Form.

Please note: We will not contact you or schedule your preferred dates until after we receive a second round of funding. Your field trip to MFTA will not be guaranteed.

If you would like to secure a trip to MFTA as soon as possible, please complete our Paid Field Trip Form. Field Trips are 175.00 per class. After you complete the paid field trip form, a member from the MFTA Education Team will contact you about dates, times, and details.

Reminder: MFTA has 2 classrooms. Each classrooms can hold a maximum of 32 people total, including adults. Please do not merge your school classes or go over our person maximum, as it negatively impacts the quality of the class.

COVID-19 Reminder: We’re currently scheduling Virtual Field Trips with live Teaching Artists until further notice.
