About

FAC’s Education Programs enable students to deepen their understanding of the arts by giving all ages the opportunity to engage, interact and learn from industry professionals and emerging artists. Our programs allow students to grow in their own practices of visual, drama, music, theatre, literacy and more, while achieving curriculum outcomes.

Performances
In 2017, students can experience powerful performances by renowned Australian and international companies, with special school prices to our main-stage presentations.

When you book a school group into a performance, you not only experience a professional production that will engage your students and leave long lasting memories, you will also have access to:

  • Free attendance at Workshops or Special Events with performance tickets, limited availability
  • Extensive Teacher Resource Kit on each performance outlining connections to curriculum and outcomes
  • Outreach Programs held within your school to prepare students for their visit to the theatre, including digital workshops and artist visits, where available
  • Access to FAC's Education e-News distributed monthly, and more!
We can also tailor workshops to your student needs. For more information speak to Karina Lamb, Team Leader Programming & Engagement on (03) 9784 1890, karina.lamb@frankston.vic.gov.au or see DoArtFAC.com.au
