Description

Young Audiences Arts for Learning Virginia is the leading provider of quality arts-in-education programming in Virginia. We offer an array of arts performances and workshops grounded in the core curriculum, residencies for children of all ages, and professional development in arts-integration techniques that improve students’ literacy skills, motivation to read, and ability to learn.

We are dedicated to bringing innovation and imagination to education through the arts. We believe that creativity and critical thinking are essential aspects of the development of a child and that failing to develop every child’s creative capacity diminishes all of us. When the arts are integrated into the educational lives of our children, their diverse intelligences and learning styles are valued and enhanced and they learn more effectively.

Children need arts for learning. It sparks their imaginations and feeds their minds. It improves their academic performance and encourages them to stay in school. It connects them to their families, their cultures, and their communities.
