Bringing art to life for children and the young-at-heart through 3 key programs: MainStage, ArtReach and Learning the Craft.
Both MainStage (at the Taft) and ArtReach (touring) shows are accompanied by complimentary study guides. Each season's productions are intended to act as a bridge for local curriculums, giving schools access to high quality arts education as well as serving as a catalyst for integrating the arts with other subjects. ArtReach also features a WorkShop division which takes a teaching artist directly to classrooms and afterschool programs.
Our Learning the Craft classes offers various integrated arts sessions (8 or 12 weeks) for students of all abilities and ages.
