The Nebraska Theatre Caravan of the Arts Academy developed workshops for low-
income children in dance, acting, music, and the visual arts. The
goal was to provide an introduction to art appreciation and the
techniques, materials, and creative processes of the visual artist. The workshops were
open to all interested youth, with the unit directors specifically speaking with members
who might have shown interest in the past and would benefit from the workshops.
During and after the project period, there was a strong involvement and interest of the
teen members and staff. The clubs were able to
build collaborations throughout the arts community by working with a variety
of artists contracted through the Nebraska Theatre Caravan.
