Create, learn and be hopeful
The extended Muse Machine family is pulling together (from the safety of their homes) to be a source of creative exploration, learning and joy for the community. Our plans for exceptional arts and education experiences for the next school year are taking shape, with special consideration to the ways that the academic year may begin somewhat differently for teachers and schools. At the same time, we are providing new creative content to families in their homes now, when they need inspiration during unusual times.
We’ve launched a new video series called Muse Together, featuring creative artists, Muse alumni and educators, to provide an eclectic array of instruction and delight for young people, their families and teachers. From artistic tips to dance exercises to mini performances to teaching guides, these “house calls” will enlighten and brighten days, a few minutes at a time.
Muse is doing what it can to ensure that young people return to school with the opportunities to learn in hands-on, imaginative ways that are effective and engaging. A roster of new and returning artists are creating some of our best in-school performances to date, while our preschool and elementary residency artists prepare unforgettable lessons on virtually any academic topic.
This summer, Muse is collaborating with world class teaching artists to offer new online professional development resources for educators. In a way that accommodates teachers’ safety and schedules, Muse will provide tools and inspiration for the year ahead.
For this generation of young people, there has perhaps never been a time when the chance to look forward to something, to create, to learn or to feel hopeful is more critically needed. Muse Machine will continue to provide those opportunities, during this challenging time and beyond.
