Do any of you have any experience with taking a group of students on an
art-related trip of extended length? I'd like to plan a trip with my
high-school art students to Mexico, where they could experience the art
and culture first-hand. I know such a trip has many obstacles, such as
funding, timing, supervision, and approvals, but if these could be solved
I think it would be an extraordinary experience for the kids. Funding
would have to be done through fund-raisers, donations?, grants?, and
possibly some out-of-pocket expense. Timing-wise, the trip would
probably be taken during the allocated spring-break time, because I think
there's a limit to the number of school days which can be missed. As far
as supervision, we would need to have 1 adult for every __? students.
The approval would have to come from the School Board, which would have
to be sold by a well-researched and thought-out plan.

If anyone knows of any good resources such as pre-planned trips, or you
have any helpful suggestions or ideas, please let us know. Thanks!
