Theater Arts Residencies

A Workshop teaching artist visits a classroom or after-school program once or twice a week for a minimum of 5 weeks (maximum of 30 weeks) – we call this a “residency.”

 

Through a variety of options, students can participate in performing arts residencies or use theatre, improvisation, playwriting, or dance to explore non-theater curriculum in a dramatic way. Our teaching artists collaborate with teachers to “break open” curriculum for students with different styles of learning. They challenge students to reach new levels of curricular understanding through use of arts integrated lessons. Students participating in ThinkBIG! artist-teacher’s collaborations have shown improved test scores as well as stronger social skills such as leadership and cooperation with others.

 

Our residencies provide opportunities for K - 12 students and teachers to work closely with skilled theater artists. These high-quality, creative drama programs assist schools in expanding their arts curriculum. Students are challenged in a positive, supportive and constructive atmosphere that culminates in a final demonstration of skills. Each program is customized to the needs of your particular school and age group. Take a look at some of these past topics designed to ignite imagination and further education.
