GO BEYOND THE CLASSROOM WITH artsreach
The Wilson Center is dedicated to extending the reach of the arts within local communities, schools, and classrooms. Working directly with teachers, students, and parents, our ArtsReach programming is customized to build connections in the classroom and increase engagement through the arts. Whether it is a visit to our Bryant Dance Studio for a cultural dance class or teambuilding through a school mural inspired by one of our student performances, ArtsReach programming inspires lifelong discovery and exploration of the arts.
ArtsReach participants will:
• Connect the arts across subjects and disciplines in the classroom
• Discover an appreciation for the arts
• Increase self-confidence and problem-solving skills
• Collaborate with diverse professional artists working in their field
