Classroom Workshops and Residencies

Create, watch, reflect and connect

Classroom Workshops are designed by New Victory Education to engage students as artists and actively explore various topics, art forms and themes. Workshops are team-taught by highly-trained and experienced New Victory Teaching Artists. Pre- and post-show workshops are available for classes attending New Victory performances. These workshops enhance students’ experience of the show, bridging the gap between audience and arts engagement. Arts-based workshops that are not tied to a show experience are also available.

All New Victory Education Partners can book unlimited Classroom Workshops throughout the year. For Partners seeking deeper engagement, a limited number of 5, 10 and 15-session residencies are available.

Classroom Workshop FAQs

How many students can participate?

The maximum number of students we can work with in a single workshop is 35. Schools should not combine classes when booking workshops. Please book multiple workshops if you have more than one class participating.

How long is a Classroom Workshop?

Workshops are 45 to 60 minutes.

Where do they take place?

Workshops take place at your school or site. Workshops are ideally held in a classroom, gymnasium or auditorium that will allow the students to move safely in the space and accommodate full participation. Virtual workshops are available and can be requested by contacting

Teachers must be present regardless of where the workshop occurs and are highly encouraged to participate.

Do I need to supply anything?

The teaching team will bring any necessary materials. However, using a smartboard, chart paper, markers or other common classroom supplies may be helpful. Teaching Artists may also ask students to use their pen/pencil and paper for some activities. We will communicate additional requests in a workshop confirmation email.

What are the Safety Guidelines for in-person workshops?

  • All New Victory Teaching Artists are fully vaccinated for Covid-19 
  • Teaching Artists will adhere to any school-specific Covid-19 safety policies while on site.
  • For the safety of our Teaching Artists, who, through  their work, come into contact with multiple school communities and populations throughout the week, we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE students and classroom professionals to wear masks in classrooms when Teaching Artists are present.
  • Schools are highly encouraged to contact New Victory and the assigned Teaching Artists if there is a Covid-19 or other illness outbreak in a classroom where a Classroom Workshop has taken place recently or is scheduled to occur soon so that appropriate action can be taken for contact tracing or possible rescheduling.

How can I book a Classroom Workshop?

Links to book pre- and post-show workshops can be found on each production’s webpage and in the Education Resource Unit.
