NWCT's educational outreach programs are custom designed to meet the needs of individual students, educators, and schools. NWCT is an accredited arts organization with Young Audiences/Run for the Arts, and is a proud partner program of the Right-Brain Initiative. Thanks to our generous supporters, special funding may be available for your school; please call 503-222-2190 x19 or email the Educational Outreach Department to inquire.
In our after-school programs, students typically meet once a week after school for an hour where they explore the world of theater. Highly customizable, these programs have included mask work, script writing, improvisation, pantomime and character creation. Each class usually concludes with a small demonstration for family and friends.
These classes follow a variety of models, from partnering with SUN programs, to renting the space and having parents register their student directly through NWCT.
