#ArtsEdWeekIndy: Think & Drink – Arts Education Trivia Night

IMG_5237Do you remember what you learned in art class in the third grade? Do you know what fifth graders typically learn in music class? Here’s the chance to find out what you know! Come out to Sun King Brewery on Monday, September 12 from 5:30 – 7 pm to test your knowledge of arts education with a trivia night.

Attendees may choose to participate in the trivia night by filling out a worksheet, but if trivia isn’t your cup of tea, or in this instance beer,  there are many other fun activities for you to enjoy at Sun King.

Come color iconic Indianapolis murals, strike up a conversation with your friends about why you believe in arts in education, and drink Sun King’s delicious craft beer. Trivia participants will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Prize Pack, generously donated by Sun King Brewing Company.

You will also have the opportunity to sign up to join one of four Any Given Child Indy committees – Creative Engagement, Professional Development, Budget & Resources, or Evaluation & Assessment.
