Arts Education

The Myrna Loy Arts Education and Outreach

Art transforms education. The Myrna Loy brings arts experiences into school classrooms and many other organizations. We offer a series of classroom, community, and onstage experiences tailored to your group. Our teaching artists aim to teach, to inspire, to empower, and to generate a lifelong love of the arts in everybody—regardless of ability, mobility, experience, or age.

To ask how to schedule an arts experience with your school or group, contact Mikell Fox: [email protected]
