We believe that arts education is essential for cultivating creative and critical thinking skills in individuals of all ages.
Our programs are led by experienced artists, educators, and industry professionals who are passionate about sharing their expertise with the next generation of artists and art enthusiasts. From workshops to panels and Q&A sessions, our programs cover a wide range of topics and are suitable for students of all levels, from beginners to advanced.
Our core educational programs are centered on youth (K-12) and have been since the Scranton Fringe Festival was launched in 2015. We engage with youth to explore all aspects of making theatre and other creative art forms through several programs: story and expression, connection with others, examination of self, artistic production, and discovery of the world—all while having fun! Our Early Stages program which brings professional performances and workshops for free to regional youth is made possible through partnerships with the Lackawanna County Children’s Library and other site venues.
