Students & Families

Thousands of students from all across the region have participated in our arts education programs. Through our school programs, we develop artistic, academic and social skills that extend beyond the art form. Our community programs are geared towards families and youth by exposing audiences to the arts — many for the first time — or engaging participants in the artistic process.

Wells Fargo OnStage Family Series

Performances represent a variety of art forms including music, theater, puppetry and more. Past performers have included Barefoot Puppets Theatre, techno and juggling performer Mark Nizer, theater artist Charmaine Crowell-White, and Virginia Opera.
