What to expect in an ArtsPlay™ Class

  • Parents/caregivers and children arrive and become familiar with the space.
  • Teaching Artists, parents/caregivers, and children participate in Warm-Up activity.
  • Teaching Artists and children move into the Imagination Room* while the parents/caregivers remain in the waiting area.
  • Teaching Artists lead children through integrated performing arts experiences in the Imagination Room.
  • Toward the end of each class, one Teaching Artist will leave the Imagination Room and join the parents/caregivers in the waiting area to discuss the strategies introduced during the class and ways to extend the experiences at home.
  • Teaching Artist and children finish class and join parents/caregivers.
  • Parents/caregivers and children are welcome to remain and socialize in the waiting area.

We ask that parents remain in the Warm-Up space during the main part of class. Your child will get the most out of this program if he/she is able to develop a positive relationship with the Teaching Artist. We believe that your child may have a more difficult time developing a relationship with the Teaching Artists while you are present.
