"In the Moment" Arts Education
As arts education programs are cut throughout the country, "In the Moment" provides aesthetic experiences in schools and libraries for students to connect to academic content in meaningful, memorable ways. Our programs are aligned with Common Core standards to support and supplement classroom learning, while reaching out to tactile, auditory, kinesthetic and visual learners. We provide lessons in science, mathematics, social studies and language arts at all grade levels, accessible to our students through music, design, movement and their own creative process. Research also shows that creating or viewing art lowers stress levels and improves memory and empathy.
Our team has years of experience in the fine arts, theater, and education as creators, performers, teachers, directors, costumers, designers and painters.
