Youth Arts

Wolf Trap Program

A performance residency and arts field trip program that reaches children in low income communities, The Herberger Theater partners with Scottsdale Arts Learning and Innovation to provide Wolf Trap to children in preschool and Head Start programs.

The innovative, proven “arts with education” program was created to enhance educational advancement of children and train parents and teachers in the use of performing arts as a teaching tool.

Professional performing artists are placed in classrooms to provide arts-integrated learning experiences that connect to math, science and literacy. When you bring the arts into the classroom, you create joyful, active learning experiences that engage children in ways that can increase academic and social-emotional development. The program culminates in an interactive field trip to the Herberger Theater.

"Having a chance to expose students to the arts is a heartwarming memory."
