Artist for a Day (AFAD) – For Schools

Puppeteer

Artist for a Day is a great introduction to Galaxy services! Artists are hosted by schools for one day in one location, during which they provide up to three 1-hour, classroom-based lessons and/or performances. Artist lessons are educational and curriculum-based. They are intended to explore an art form while making strong connections with other academic subject areas and their related PA Academic Standards.

  • $250 /day= 1 artist (up to 3, 1-hour lessons OR up to 2, 1.5 hour lessons w/ no performance)
  • $250 /day= 1 artist in 1 performance (price doubles for 2 performances)
