Who We Are
Arts and Education programming is the heart of Young Audiences’ service to the community, bringing artists and teachers together to ensure the arts are an integral part of our children’s educational experience.
Students actively participate in music, drama, visual arts, dance and literary arts through Residencies, Performances, Workshops and Family Arts Nights.
These programs celebrate, teach and open worlds of expression, helping students cultivate essential knowledge and skills necessary for success in the 21st century— imagination, creativity, self-direction, flexibility and appreciation of diversity and teamwork.
