artsREACH was created with the goal of providing the highest quality visual and performing arts training to young children, regardless of their financial means. To reach the children who would benefit the most, workshops are delivered without charge in public elementary schools, with a focus on those schools with a high percentage of children from lower-income families.
All of the artsREACH instructors are practicing artists or actors who have experience working with children, a post-secondary and have attended specialized training sessions run through Arts Umbrella.
In the current school year, we have contracted:
* 4 Visual Arts Instructors
* 2 Visual Arts Assistant Instructors
* 4 Theatre Instructors
* 1 Theatre Arts assistant instructor
