Did you know that nearly 90 percent of Paramount sponsored events involve education and outreach?
Each year, approximately 55,000 students in the Tri-State are served by the Paramount Arts Center through these programs. The Paramount provides a variety of classes and workshops throughout the year for students of all ages… pre-school through adult!
The Paramount offers an arts academy during the fall and spring semesters. Classes are available for ages pre-school through adults and include visual arts drawing, dance, acting, audition workshops, stage makeup, painting, drawing, creative movement, directing, and seasonal craft workshops.
Give your students the opportunity to work with one of our resident artists during and after school. Workshops are available in drama, theater arts, music, voice, visual arts, film production, playwriting, dance, and storytelling, and many other subject areas that can be customized to the needs of your class or program. All workshops will provide intensive, interactive, hands-on instruction in the chosen discipline. Each one is designed to encourage a healthy sense of self-esteem in individual students, regardless of their skill level or theater experience. Resident artists will engage students in collaborative projects to enhance creativity, self-expression and self-confidence. Workshops are available at the Paramount or at your location.
The Paramount Players produce theatrical performances that tour to schools throughout the year. Bringing the performance to your school is an opportunity for the entire student population to participate in a worthwhile live performance at a fraction of the price of taking your students on a field trip. It also drastically cuts down on the time your students are out of class!
Open for grades K-12, and adults, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday on non-show days. Your group will be able to experience the living history of a building that is listed as a Kentucky Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. You will learn how the theater was rescued from destruction by a group of dedicated citizens. Today, thanks to the efforts of many local citizens, businesses, and state and local officials, the old art deco movie theatre has been refurbished and transformed into a state of the art Performing Arts Center. Tours will include an opportunity to work with one of our resident artists.
