Arts in the Schools
ACHF Arts Education
Supporting high-quality, age-appropriate arts education for residents of all ages to develop knowledge, skills, and understanding of the arts: Our students do not have close access to professional theaters so their experience with live actors is limited. By bringing the professional to our school, all students can benefit from the learning experience. My wish for this project would be that it inspires my students to strive for a higher level of artistry that we can carry on into future years. The skills we work on can be built upon and developed even after the project is over. Students will be surveyed about their knowledge of musical theater and its components before and after the project.
