Blog: Robert B. Ingram Elementary Experienced a Breath of Fresh Art through PAMM Inside|Out

On May 8, 2017, Robert B. Ingram Elementary School’s fourth grade class experienced a breath of fresh art in Opa-Locka while touring the works installed around the community as part of PAMM Inside|Out's spring installation.

"Awesome and unique," said Robert B. Ingram Elementary students when asked about their fieldtrip through Opa-Locka's Inside|Out installation. Led by PAMM Teaching Artists, students experienced a unique and personal school fieldtrip touring the works installed throughout their community. 

Having also seen select Inside|Out works at the museum when visiting as part of the Knight Schools Program, the students engaged in conversations about their environment and how the outdoor artworks can spark new ideas and inspiration. 

Students loved navigating the map to discover where the works were located. "It's kind of like a scavenger hunt," one student said. After the tour, students returned to the ARC and created their own artworks inspired by their community using collage, markers and construction paper to design Inside|Out postcards.
