Our school programs can be modified for one-week or multi-week residencies and workshops. Our teaching artist will work with classroom teachers to design a curriculum that best fits your goals, project scope and aligns with the California Content Standards in the Visual and Performing Arts for the selected grade level.
Residencies offer students a chance to explore elements of shadow theater in depth while teachers can use the residency as a staff development opportunity to learn how to teach lessons themselves. Residencies culminating in a performance are typically take place one or two days a week for at least ten weeks. We strongly recommend that time be set aside for teaching artists and classroom teachers to work collaboratively to integrate the multi-disciplinary art form into their weekly lesson plans. Our teaching artists are a great resource for learning to create shadow theatre in your classroom, teaching world history, mythology and storytelling!
