field trips

Bring your school group to Ben’s Bells studio  and engage in a fun, hands-on, educational experience and community service project in one! Field trips are designed for student groups (K-8 school field trips, scout troops, clubs or teams, etc.) and are a great way to expand your kindness skills and give back to your community. (Please note: minimum age for participants is 5 years and older.)

Participants will learn the mission and story behind Ben’s Bells and how the practice of intentional kindness benefits all of us. Then, they will engage in a hands-on art experience, learning basic ceramic processes and understanding how their work furthers the mission of Ben’s Bells and supports our kindness education programming.

At Ben’s Bells we recognize that kindness is a skill we can practice and that when we practice, we improve our own life and the lives of everyone around us. Life presents us with plenty of situations that require advanced kindness skills, and with practice, we can be ready! For the final 15 minutes, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about kindness and practice kindness skills with a fun activity led by a Ben's Bells staff member!
