Booking requests received prior to May 29 will be given scheduling priority. Requests made after May 29 will be filled based on remaining performer availability.
School Shows at The ArtsCenter
School Shows are a series of multi-disciplinary performances presented on weekday mornings at The ArtsCenter, and are excellent field trip opportunities for students and teachers alike. All shows are connected to curriculum and provide unique cultural experiences for students.
Most artists who are performing in schools will also host a performance at The ArtsCenter. If you are interested in booking a field trip to The ArtsCenter, stay tuned for dates, pricing, and reservation information here in mid-August 2017. Field trip reservations will be handled separately from in-school bookings, and sold at a per-ticket rate.
Artist Residency Programs
The mission of the arts residency programs is to find ways to integrate the arts to achieve the common core curriculum goals by presenting the subject matter in new and different ways. We can assist you in making that connection. We have a roster of talented and experienced teaching artists with unlimited imaginations. Our approach in developing lesson plans creates excitement and fosters curiosity in a variety of subjects for all ages and learning styles.
