Arts Education improves children’s cognitive development and academic success. It’s not just about teaching young people to sing or dance. It’s about teaching them teamwork, time management, focus, discipline, confidence, and so much more.
Red Mountain Theatre will send a qualified Teaching Artist to teach a process-oriented class that uses theatrical storytelling to engage in curricular themes. Classes vary based on the goals of the students and/or partner organizations.
Teaching Artists and Curriculum
Teaching Artists are practicing artists who are committed to teaching young people through the arts. They are trained and vetted by Red Mountain Theatre and pass all standard background checks in order to ensure the safety of the young people with whom they work to give a quality educational experience.
