Arts education is an essential part of an education—so we invite school groups to participate in engaging, curriculum-enhancing activities with Arts NC State. From arts workshops to behind-the-scenes tours and kid-friendly performances, we partner with schools to instill a life-long love of the arts in our youngest students.

School tours

School groups are invited to take a behind-the-scenes tour of Arts NC State. Led by one our enthusiastic staff members, the tours give students an in-depth look at how a college arts program functions. *We do our best to accommodate school tours and workshops, but they may sometimes be unavailable due to our team’s capacity.

The tours give you:

  • A guided tour through the Gregg Museum of Art & Designs’s exhibitions
  • A backstage view of the theatre
  • The opportunity to watch open rehearsals of performances
  • Close-up views of the facilities
  • The chance to interact with arts students and professionals
