Bringing arts education directly into schools.
Theater Artist and Playwrighting Residency
Arts Hub partners with Duke City Repertory Theatre Company for year-long theater artist residencies in elementary classrooms. Students learn how to create an interesting story, develop compelling characters, write/edit scripts, and produce original theatrical works. Students spend the first semester developing acting, performance, and writing skills. During the second semester, they write a play as a group, edit, rehearse, and perform their original play for the community. The program supports confidence, teamwork, and literacy skills.
High School Improv League
Arts Hub works with The Box Performance Space and The Show to bring professional improvisers into high school classrooms. The improvisers work with students to develop their improv and performance skills. Students learn what it takes to create improvised scenes based on audience suggestions. They then develop their own improv show and showcase their work to the community and the end of the year. This program supports confidence, critical thinking, and problem solving skills through a fun and empowering curriculum.
After School Comics Club
Arts Hub brings in local artists to work with students on story development for comics. Students will learn to create their own stories and characters from scratch and develop ideas into a comic. Students will gain experience with story development, problem solving, communication and many key art skills needed to excel in the world of entertainment art.
