Art 120 https://www.art120.org/

Art 120 was founded in 2010 to provide schools and communities access to art within a 120-mile radius of Chattanooga. Their interactive programs encourage a culture of accomplishment through hands-on learning and self-discovery. Their mobile programs bring art to the classroom and are tailored to accommodate online, in-person or hybrid learning.

Our secondary learning programs encourage teamwork and interdisciplinary learning. Through mobile contraption building, art teachers explore a variety of fabrication techniques with their students.

“The Jingle Truck exhibit was very beneficial to our students and the overall culture of our school.” –

Create and build fully functional kinetic sculptures, termed “Art Cars.” Students will broaden their artistic access, deepen learning as they integrate other educational disciplines into their art including; science, math, physics, and engineering.

Program Title: ArtCarAVan

Program Type: Arts Appreciation

Program Description:

The Art Caravan program is an annual event that connects students to artists from a variety of cultures and mediums. By extending art to Primary grade learners (especially Title 1 elementary schools that do not have an art program), it acts as a catalyst to transformation and inspire creativity. Art 120 mobilizes two artists to work in each elementary school for the day. Students get to meet the artists and see their work art up close. With works of art displayed in the school environment, curious students are encouraged to open up, touch the art (when possible), and ask questions. Artists talk about the mediums used, and share what motivated them create their artwork. Artists encourage students to value their own creativity. Teachers at these schools have the opportunity to integrate the activity in with their own curriculum through creative writing, drawing, poster making, and math. This event occurs annually on the last Friday in April of every year. Schools with art programs and ability are encouraged to sponsor a school without art by purchasing an extra ticket per student.
