The goal of the program is to expose individuals to exemplary art and encourage appreciation for the visual arts.
The primary audience for "Allen Art to Go" is elementary school children in Kindergarten through 6th
grade. Through the program children are exposed to artworks that they may not have otherwise seen. The children are encouraged
to explore the artwork and discover what they think and feel about the art.
"Art to Go" started with two pilot
test schools in 2004. The 2012/13 Program Year includes 11 AISD elementary schools, presentations to home school students
and seniors, plus a collaboration with a high school art club.
