Custom Workshops

For students, teachers, and teacher candidates, introductory workshops offer solid curricular connections while also providing an artistic and motivational individual and team-building experience. Workshops can be created for groups of all skill levels, and can be crafted to complement your unique needs. You and your students can explore singing, movement, drama, and/or design with professional artists, either in your own classroom or during a visit to the COC.

"This thrill and appreciation of opera (and of all art forms) is a critical part of an education curriculum which ensures an understanding and appreciation that in art and music, one can find inspiration, joy, escapism, awe and humanistic insight – which to me, are all very necessary elements of character development.” Teacher, Dundas Public School

Combine your workshop with a tour of the Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Opera Centre! Call Vanessa Smith, School Programs Manager, at 416-306-2392 for details.
