INdepth Residencies: Integrate an artist’s perspective in your school community

For educators wanting further exploration and hands-on learning for their students, YPT can arrange an artist residency at your school. Artist Educators will work with students on an ongoing basis to delve deeply into the world of drama and performance. This experience can support students and teachers participating in the school play, musical or other forms of live performance. Cost varies depending on the program content and length of residency (please contact us for specifics.)
