In-school Residencies

In-School Residencies

Kentucky Shakespeare will work with your Arts and Humanities Coordinator to develop a residency designed specifically to meet your school’s goals and needs.

You may choose from one of the following pre-made residencies:

 

Shakespeare’s Studio (Grades K-7)

Our Artist-in-Residency will use Shakespeare as a base to introduce Elizabethan dance, pantomime/drama, music and visual arts to students. A professional Artist Educator comes directly to your classroom with a carefully crafted curriculum designed to meet the Common Core.

Length of Program: 6 Hours

Max # of Students: 30

 

Shakespeare’s Studio (Grades 8-12)  

Our Artist-in-Residency will immerse students in the elements of drama as well as literary, technical and performance techniques as they create their own dramatic production. By writing their own script, creating their own costumes and scenery and acting in their own play, students are engaged in this learning experience. A professional Artist Educator comes directly into your classroom with carefully developed lessons that meet Common Core standards.

Length of Program: 8 Hours

Max # of Students: 30

 

The After-School Drama Program

This program was designed to serve youth on a weekly basis with an introduction to theatre, dance, music, visual arts and creative writing. Typically, this program will meet weekly for two hours a week over the course of twelve weeks, but this can be altered to meet your scheduling needs.

Youth will be engaged in:

1) Writing, producing and performing in their own production gaining hands on learning experience in arts education.

2) Working with our Artist Educator, who will be on-site one day a week for two hours leading activities that include set and costume design, play writing, ensemble building, choreography, music appreciation and drama.

3) Participating in a final performance of the youth written, produced and performed production.
