Our goal is to make the arts an essential part of every student’s education. SPECTRA artists represent some of Tuscaloosa’s best. These artists are highly skilled professionals selected not only for artistic excellence, but also for the ability to communicate effectively with young people. For students, a tremendous variety of in-school arts activities allow student involvement in visual arts, music, and acting. Concerts, demonstrations and other activities are also available both in-school and on site throughout the community.
The In-School Concert/Demonstrations and Plays for Children offer a careful balance of performance and instruction. Space needs are flexible. Program lengths vary from 30 to 50 minutes, depending on the program and audience age. Some experiences are offered in workshop format only, in which a classroom size group works closely with an artist and has the opportunity to participate more effectively in the artistic process. Maximum class size has been established to assure successful involvement of all students. Teachers must remain with students for the duration of all activities.
Prices for each event vary and are listed with each program description. When maximum numbers are exceeded, the program fee may increase. Schools outside Tuscaloosa County may be charged an extra fee for mileage.
Programs are scheduled subject to the availability of the artists. To schedule a program, contact Sharron Rudowski, Director of Educational Programs, at 758-5195, ext. 4, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be helpful to have your school’s calendar, daily schedule and enrollment figures when calling. A confirmation/invoice will be sent after scheduling.
All scheduled and confirmed programs are considered binding. Two weeks’ notice must be given by the school if the program is to be rescheduled. Should illness, inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances prevent the artist from performing, SPECTRA will offer the school the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.
