The Flint Institute of Arts is opening its door to city teachers.

It’s been several years since Flint had a comprehensive arts program. 

The FIA is giving more than 400 Flint teachers free family museum memberships. 

“They’ll see things they can use in their own teaching,” says Kathryn Sharbaugh, the Assistant Director of development at the FIA. “It’s just a very positive experiment for us.”

Sharbaugh says the free memberships may eventually be expanded to other school districts.
