ARTSREACH IN THE COMMUNITY                                                              

Beyond the Wilson Center walls, ArtsReach provides organizations and schools in the greater southeastern Wisconsin community with engaging hands-on experiences with professional local and visiting artists through:

In-School Residencies: Enrich your regular school curriculum and/or after school programming through the power of the arts! Multi-week programming allows students to engage with the local professional teaching artists in classes that vividly enhance students’ classroom experiences to inspire self-confidence, team building, and creative thinking through the arts. Programs can include, but are not limited to: murals, creative writing, music, dance, or performing arts. 

Workshops and Master Classes: Each season, the Wilson Center provides a limited number of workshops and masterclasses with artists from our world-class Performing Arts Series. Puppet-making with touring theatre groups, jazz workshops with renowned musicians, dance classes with international dance companies, and more—students gain first-hand experience with professionals of the highest technical and artistic mastery in their field.
