Students from Minneapolis Public Schools will have free access to Prince's estate and recording complex, which is now a museum.
Admission to the museum, Paisley Park, is typically between $38.50 and $160.
The Fine Arts Interdisciplinary Resource (FAIR) School will be the first to benefit from the program. This new art education program will first focus on schools within the Minneapolis district and later broaden their reach outside of the metro area.
Ed Graff, Minneapolis Public Schools Superintendent, said in a press release, "It's fitting that this wonderful opportunity is starting with The FAIR School, which is a magnet high school in Downtown where the arts are integrated in all academic areas. I look forward to continued collaboration with Paisley Park and growing our partnership to provide even more MPS students with this experience."
"[Prince] was a passionate advocate of music education and its ability to inspire children and adults alike, and we look forward to fulfilling this tenet through our work with MPS," saidPaisley Park tour manager Mitch Maguire.
