Arts education is an essential component of every student’s academic journey and this new season is full of innovative and exciting opportunities for you and your students! Each Discovery Series production has been carefully selected to enhance curriculum connections throughout subject areas. For many years, studies have shown the arts have a real impact on a student’s reading and language skills, mathematics skills, thinking skills, social skills, and motivation to learn. By adding a Discovery Series experience to your academic calendar, you will be inspiring new pathways for achievement both inside and outside of the classroom.
You can also download the full 2018-2019 Discovery Series brochure (PDF) which contains the order form.
