ArtsBridge Foundation Announces 2022-23 Field Trip And Masterclass Schedule

As the school year gets underway statewide, ArtsBridge Foundation today announced its 2022-2023 lineup of arts education programming available to K-12 students, teachers and parents through field trips, masterclasses and professional development offerings.

Created 15 years ago as the nonprofit education division of the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, ArtsBridge Foundation engages over 30,000 students annually with subjects spanning music, math, dance, science, live theater, literature, social studies and poetry.

Performances include regional and internationally renowned tour companies, singers, dancers, artists and actors, each engaging youth with age-appropriate content. The venue and foundation also collaborate with The Atlanta Opera and Atlanta Ballet, tapping local arts organizations in residence at the venue.

"The ArtsBridge Foundation's array of field trip, masterclass and professional development or workshop events provide something educational and entertaining for every K-12 student we engage," said Jennifer D. Dobbs, executive director of ArtsBridge Foundation. "ArtsBridge field trips are tied to the Georgia Standards of Excellence, and we invite public, private and home-schooled students, parents and teachers to experience our programming that best suits their curriculum and interests."

In line with ArtsBridge Foundation's commitment to its mission, vision, and Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (I.D.E.A.), the organization offers a Financial Aid Subsidy that provides admission and bus transportation subsidies to Title I and schools in need. Each performance has 2,750 seats available.

"Our masterclasses provide professional and personal development opportunities, and the field trips provide a memorable introduction to the joy and magic of live performance art," Dobbs added. "Our new professional development workshop series, Theatre: Inside-n-Out, is yet another innovative program added in conjunction with ArtsBridge Foundation's 15th year."

The Theatre: Inside-n-Out series will provide general and specialized skills to assist both technical and theatrical techniques of theatre."

The field trip, professional development and masterclass schedule runs concurrent with ArtsBridge Foundation's presentation of the 15th Annual Georgia High School Musical Theatre Awards competition, also known as the Shuler Hensley Awards, Shuler Awards or The Shulers as the program is named for the Marietta-born star of the stage and screen. The program engages thousands of students from up to 50 schools statewide.
