Workshop and intensive offer a unique opportunity for hands-on theatre education. Together students will embark on an arduous journey to create a live musical theatre event. Along the way their multi-tasking will build confidence, teach life skills, foster collaborative relationships, and educate the imagination.
MTVarts’ performance-based youth arts education, artsIQ, provides opportunities for artists ages 8 to 18 to take the stage and engage nearly 2000 elementary students in a live theater experience as part of the YES series. Public performances are also offered. Our educational series not only has a positive, long-lasting impact on the students involved but on the community as a whole.
