Segerstrom Center to Host THE ANNUAL ARTS TEACH SHOWCASE, 4/29
Teachers and school administrators, PTA members, community partners, nonprofit organizations and others interested in presenting world-class artists at assemblies or teach art workshops at their sites are encouraged to attend Segerstrom Center for the Arts' annual Arts Teach Showcase on April 29 from 8:45 a.m. to 1:16 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. During this free action-packed and fun-filled day, attendees can watch live performances on three stages, experience hands-on workshops and meet with the talented teaching artists to explore unique and wonderful ways of presenting customized programs for upcoming events.
More than 60 internationally acclaimed professional artists will be on hand, representing a variety of art forms such as dance, music, theater, storytelling and the visual arts. Guests will be among the first to receive the Center's 2014 - 2015 Arts Teach catalog that includes new artists and programs available.
Doors open at 8:45 a.m. and the Showcase performances begin at 9:30 a.m. All attendees present for the opening (8:45 a.m.) and closing (1:16 p.m.) will be eligible to win prizes such as free assemblies, workshops and tickets to an upcoming show, among other prizes.
The Center's Arts Teach program is one of many available through Segerstrom Center's Education and Community Programs Department, which serves nearly 400,000 young people each year with programs both at the Center and in schools and community events. The artists have auditioned and demonstrated their ability to enrich arts-in-education programs that meet Common Core standards and impact the community through performance and interaction with students and audiences of all ages.
