The Hopkins Center for the Arts School Matinee Series connects children, teachers, and schools with the performing arts in profound and meaningful ways, enhancing school curriculum and introducing students to worlds they have never known before.
According to national standards in the visual and performing arts, each school is encouraged to provide a high-quality experience in the arts for its students. The Hop is committed to helping your school meet this goal. Bringing your students to a live theatrical performance challenges them to watch and reflect critically—and to connect personal experience to universal themes, via the arts. Exposure to live theater ignites a child’s imagination in a unique way, opening the door to a greater understanding of the world and a life-long love of the arts.
The Hopkins Center’s Outreach and Arts Education Department offers Study Guides with classroom activities and other curriculum suggestions to prepare students for live performances at the Hop.
Because the Hop believes that an education is not complete without the arts, your students can experience live performances for only $6 per ticket.
