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.

Teacher Tuesdays

A.R.T. Teacher Tuesdays are fun-filled theater experiences just for educators! Join us for an educators-only evening of conversation and theater-going, jam-packed with fun, refreshments, and raffle prizes.

The evenings will be led by A.R.T.’s Education and Engagement Director and our Learning Lead team, include a ticket to the show that night, and may have special guest appearances!

If you have questions about the program, please contact and we’d be happy to help.
