Penn Live Arts Recommends Family

Fill your summer days with the performing arts by taking an Arts Break! This family-friendly, educational series by the New Victory Theater offers weeklong, step-by-step activities centered on rotating themes of culture and the performing arts. Check out arts from around the world, explore Juneteenth, try the “awe-inspiring, ta-dah world” of acrobatics and so much more.

Developed and led by New Victory’s outstanding teaching artists, each Arts Break spans five days, offering a different activity for each weekday. With age recommendations and material lists, most activities take around 30 minutes and can be done using easy-to-find household objects.

The teaching artist program at New Victory is focused on the impact of live performing arts on kids. With a foundation of robust research, the company seeks to continue its meaningful educational programming in the at-home setting.
