Workshop Offerings

Help students deepen their understanding of characters, setting, themes, and skills through one of our designed programs for the 2022-2023 school year.

Story Adventures (Grades Pre-K - 3)

Take your students inside a storybook! A teaching artist will read a different book and explore elements of the story through acting, movement, and storytelling. Students will discover the narrative process, work together as an ensemble, embody characters using voice, body, and imaginations, use creative problem solving skills, and engage in imaginative play while enjoying the best in children’s literature.

The Power of Air inspired by Air Play (For Grades Pre-K-6)

In this program, students will explore the elements of circus, theatre, or movement and how it connects to math and science lessons. Inspired by the show Air Play – a circus-style adventure of two siblings journeying through a surreal land of air.

Composing your Story inspired by Black Violin and CapLive (Grades Pre-k - 8)

Music is everywhere! Discover the mysterious and profound ways music connects to all other academic disciplines, and together join in creatively to explore the beauty of these connections through a playful, guided exploration of music composition.

Voices for Change inspired by Resistance Revival Chorus (Grades 6+)

Experience historic change movements through the poetry, song, visual art, and theatre that told their story. By the end, students will explore their own passion and hope through art, leaving with a unique poem, song, or story that enacts change and uplifts progress.

Act the Story inspired by The Crucible or Much Ado About Nothing (Grades 6+)

These workshops have students on their feet, stretching their imaginations while deepening their knowledge about the characters, setting, and themes of a performance or film. Students will learn about theatre, acting, and gain deeper understanding of the themes.
