Arts in Education is integral to the mission of the Arts Council. Each year, the Arts Council works to foster programs which allow professional artists to enrich the lives of area students through performances, workshops, and master classes. These programs provide opportunities for students to develop their own creativity through personal contact with professional performers. Since our ability to offer outreaches was limited the past few years, we focused on performers who provided them for our 2022/2023 season. Here’s what’s scheduled:
- September 29, 2022 – Artrageous (attended by students in Port Edwards, Adams-Friendship, and Wisconsin Rapids, including homeschoolers)
- November 8, 9, & 10, 2022 – The Science of Magic (attended by first- through eighth-graders in Wisconsin Rapids, Port Edwards, and Nekoosa, including homeschoolers)
- February 2, 2023 – Wisconsin Brass Quintet
- March 9, 2023 – TAKE3
Another learning opportunity that The Arts Council provides is for Lincoln High School students who comprise the technical staff for the Performing Arts Center. These students get to meet a variety of professional artists and artist management personnel while they learn the ropes of the industry.
The Arts Council is grateful to be able to offer these opportunities through the generous support of its sponsors and members.
Take a look at some of the outreach opportunities from this and past seasons…
Artrageous – September 29, 2022
The Science of Magic – November 8, 9, and 10, 2022
Nearly 4,000 students attended a total of six outreaches held over three days at the Performing Arts Center. Here are some moments capturing the excitement! Thank you to Mead Witter Foundation, Incourage, John & Judy Steele, The Kumm Family, and Earl & Vivian Haefs for grants to help offset the costs associated with these opportunities!
