We believe in young people and their potential!

Our education programs serve more than 10,000 students a year and are dedicated to the youth of our region and beyond.


Whether seeing their first symphony or creating their own three-minute film, the youth in The Lensic's education programs experience the arts firsthand.

Through the arts, we work to empower, to teach and to change lives.


We believe the performing arts can empower the young people of our community to explore their talents and strengths and to discover new passions.


We work to foster learning by connecting students with professional photographers, filmmakers, stage technicians and performers.

Change Lives

We seek to change lives through exposure to Lensic performances, in-class workshops, technical internships, student productions and a statewide student film and photography festival.
