We believe that an arts-integrated curriculum serves every student.

The A.R.T. Education Experience engages students by connecting our productions with classroom curriculum and students’ lives. In addition to inspiring creativity, collaboration, and intellectual curiosity in our community, we’re all about supporting teachers with free arts-integrated teaching tools, classroom visits, and discounted tickets to world-class theater at the A.R.T. A listing of our major educational offerings follows, but feel free to contact us for consultation on how to link your visit to the A.R.T. with your curriculum.


Full-color educational magazines include arts-integrated lesson plans, reference guides, fun and informal features, and extension activities.

Theater Tours
School groups may book morning or afternoon free backstage tour of the Loeb Drama Center during weekdays. Tours may be combined with staff interviews, workshops, and more to fit your curriculum.

A.R.T. staff and teaching artists develop custom workshops, classes, and residencies in collaboration with classroom teachers at low to no cost.

Professional Development
Looking to supplement your teaching with theater-based activities or techniques? We work with schools to facilitate professional development training around arts-integrated teaching, curriculum consultations, and connections to A.R.T. productions.

School Group Visits

A.R.T. Education Programs such as A.R.T. Kids Company, April Break programs, as well as workshops and tours for student groups are suspended until further notice.

Like many of you, we are staying informed about the events surrounding the global outbreak of the coronavirus. The health and safety of our staff, artists, and audiences is of utmost importance. We have decided to suspend all Education programs until further notice. A.R.T. staff will be in touch directly with parents and school group leaders regarding these changes.
