Arts in Education – Our Mission
Discover. Enlighten. Engage. The Performing Arts Center’s Arts in Education programs are based on the belief that our audience’s experience begins long before they enter our theaters and continues long after the last curtain call. A single spark, ignited by a thrilling encounter with a live performance or a gifted artist, can inspire a lifelong passion for the arts.
This is why, despite being unable to invite you here in person, we continue our commitment to provide K-12 students with shared experiences and creative engagement. Our School Time audiences, teachers, and friends in the community receive regular emails containing ideas and resources so that we can continue to offer opportunities for students to learn and play through the arts while at home.

New in 2021: Virtual Field Trips
This spring, our Arts-in-Education department is offering a series of virtual field trips for grades K-12. Offerings can be accessed from the classroom, at home…wherever you may be.
These trips include on-demand video segments, and easy-to-use tools for exploring curriculum, supporting social-emotional learning, and activating creativity. Click to learn more about Spring 2021 Virtual Field Trips.
