 Opera Kids ImageChildren are immersed in the arts through residencies ranging from ten to thirty sessions that are led by Lyric teaching artists in partnership with classroom teachers. Students learn to express themselves creatively by studying music, drama, movement, and creative writing, all of which culminate with students performing an original work. A professional development workshop will be held for participating teachers and teaching artists.
