THE 2023-24 SEASON CONTINUES TO PROVIDE ARTS EXPERIENCES FOR STUDENTS AND EDUCATORS
The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center announced the 2023-24 Amcor Education Series to a group of educators throughout Northeast Wisconsin attending the Educator Appreciation event on Thursday, April 27. The Amcor Education Series was created as a way to connect classroom lessons to live performing arts experiences. Through professional development for educators, the creation of performance guides and daytime education programming, the Center provides educational arts based learning opportunities for the next generation of community members.
“The arts have a way of bringing out the best and unique qualities in all of us, especially youth. Through them, students understand themselves and the people around them better in an inclusive environment where they are engaged in educational performances that celebrate their individuality,” said Fox Cities P.A.C. Chief Programming Officer Amy Gosz. “By working closely with our local educators and touring artists, we are able to provide exceptional programming that connects to classroom lessons and offers new perspectives to think critically for students of all ages, abilities, background and interests.”
The Amcor Education Series will present live performances beginning in October 2023, welcoming students in grades preK through 12 from private and public schools, state-registered homeschools and state-licensed family or group childcare centers throughout Northeast Wisconsin and upper Michigan.
