ArtQuest: Art Is All Around You is an Emmy® award-winning series of short broadcast segments focusing on developing children’s creativity and fostering a love for the visual arts through an interdisciplinary approach. Titled after the Frist Center’s interactive learning gallery for children of all ages, the segments are geared toward viewers ages 7-9 and will air on NPT between 4-6 p.m. around the popular children’s programs “Arthur,” “WordGirl,” “Wild Kratts” and “The Electric Company.”

ArtQuest on NPT is made possible by the generous support of The Frist Foundation.
