ASSEMBLY PERFORMANCES

Add excitement to your school day!

 

Young Audiences’ highly participatory assembly programs are one-time events that introduce students to an art form, while supporting a variety of curricular areas. Our unique performances are designed to reinforce core curriculum topics, foster creative and critical thinking skills, and broaden student understanding of the world’s arts and cultures. Performances are available in a wide range of music, art, dance, and theatre genres.

WORKSHOPS

Young Audiences workshops allow students to work closely with a professional artist in an interactive, hands-on environment. Programs are 45 minutes and are offered as back-to-back (repeating) workshops to serve more than one classroom. Workshops can also be added to follow an assembly program, reinforcing its content.  Inspire student writing projects through creative journaling projects or explore the local history of the Erie Canal and Underground Railroad; the possibilities are endless.   Often, it makes sense to have artists come back for several visits, making your workshop a residency.

RESIDENCIES

A residency is a series of three or more days with an artist, allowing for high level, in-depth work. Residency content is often customized based on curriculum needs and each residency includes a planning meeting with the artist. Residencies can span weeks, months or an entire school year to meet your budget and curriculum needs.  If you have an idea for an area of your curriculum, you would like to enhance through work with an artist, call our office 716-881-0917. We can help you to design a residency that will engage your students with a professional artist, and bring learning to life.
