Cultivating Creativity in Schools and Communities
Arts Education is a vital part of the Flynn’s mission, evidenced by the over 45,000 students in the community and in schools that we serve each year. Whether attending a Student Matinee performance with their classmates, finding joy in a FlynnArts after-school dance, drama, or music class, writing an original play with the guidance of a Vermont Young Playwrights Program teaching artist, discovering new meaning in a history lesson through Words Come Alive! classroom arts integration, or taking center stage in a Summer Youth Theatre production or Jazz concert, our students are experiencing the power of arts education to open minds, open hearts, and open doors to their unlimited human potential.
We take pride in our educational programs, which have been nationally recognized as models by the Kennedy Center’s Changing Education Through the Arts program, the Association of Performing Arts Presenters and in the Dana Foundation’s publication, Acts of Achievement : The Role of Performing Arts Centers in Education, We believe in removing barriers to participation through scholarships, ticket subsidies, and grant projects, because everyone deserves a serving of the arts regardless of financial resources. We also believe that education is a life-long pursuit, and keep our doors open to interested learners of all ages and experience levels. Whether in the schools, in the community, or here at the Flynn, our aim is to engage children, teens, and adults in the artistic process, cultivate appreciation of the performing arts, and make the performing arts a vital and integral part of school and community life.
