EnLIVEn! is dedicated to creating interactive experiences that make full use of the educational potential of the visual and performing arts as subjects of study, instruments for the development of life skills, and as a means of making other subjects more accessible to students.
We are also committed to developing and implementing quality job-embedded and sustained professional development to support successful arts integration.
EnLIVEn! fosters creative and critical thinking in the minds and through the imaginations of its youth. This unique and engaging program bridges the gap between the arts and education by offering interactive lessons designed to meet specific academic needs as identified by teachers.
INTERACTIVE CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES
All LIVE! lessons and units are facilitated using a residency model with either single or multiple visits. We’re happy to work with schools and teachers to create individual units or lessons for specific objectives or to coordinate special performances featuring other artists in residence or special guest artists.
