Welcome to our blog!

Every day, Young Audiences artists, teacher partners, staff, board members, and supporters work to fulfill our mission of providing opportunities for Maryland students to imagine, create, and realize their full potential through the arts. In addition to our website and monthly enewsletter, this blog shares the stories of our work in Maryland schools and examples of the profound impact the arts have on learning.

Young Audiences transforms the lives and education of our youth through the arts by connecting educators, professional artists, and communities. We provide artistically excellent programs, expertise and resources to ensure opportunities for all students across the state of Maryland. We envision a Maryland where the arts are valued for their capacity to transform lives and where every student is immersed in opportunities to imagine, to create and to realize their full potential through the arts.

Our Vision

One day, every student in Maryland will have the opportunity to imagine, create, and realize their full potential through the arts.

Our Mission

Young Audiences transforms the lives and education of our youth through the arts by connecting educators, professional artists, and communities. We provide artistically excellent programs, expertise, and resources to ensure opportunities for all students across the state of Maryland.

We strive to:

  • Bring more arts into Maryland schools by tapping into the talent of the artists living in our communities.
  • Train teachers of all subject areas to use the arts to engage students in the learning process through arts integration.
  • Ensure disadvantaged schools have more access to the arts by covering the financial gap between what schools can afford and what artists need to earn.
