Circus, being unique, visual and exciting, offers a solid foundation for learning
This one-of-a-kind education program takes learning in the classroom to a new level. Our teaching artists go into Sarasota and Manatee County schools engaging students in key academic subjects including Science,
Language Arts and Theater. These inquiry based lessons were developed to New Florida Standards with FSA impact/awareness/results. Designed to include students that have difficulty responding to other traditional forms of instruction, the education program introduces students of all learning levels and learning styles to this unique curriculum. Measurements to date demonstrate consistent benefits to retention rates and test outcomes. We follow the Kennedy Center Arts Integration protocol because it is known that “when students learn through arts integration, they are engaged in experiences in which they actively build and demonstrate their understanding of both the art form and the other curriculum area.”

P.T. Barnum once said, “Clowns are the pegs on which the circus is hung.” This workshop will tell you why.
This one hour interactive lecture demonstrates how The Circus Arts Conservatory clowns apply their makeup as they discuss life on the road with the circus. For younger students, this experience gives a good overview of what a clown is and can help alleviate fear of people in makeup. The students will walk away with a better sense of what a clown is and how some people live lives very different from our own.
