Wolf Trap Field Trip Fridays

Wolf Trap Field Trip Fridays, performed by Wolf Trap Teaching Artists, provide children with stimulating arts experiences from the comfort of their home or in the classroom. These interactive performances are accompanied by a handout for educators and parents/caregivers with information about the performances and tips to enhance children’s experiences.

New performance videos and handouts will be added every Friday from April 9 through May 21, 2021.

Wolf Trap Teaching Artists are professional performing artists who are central to Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts’ services and are selected based on their arts expertise. They receive extensive professional development from Wolf Trap on early childhood education.

Thank you General Dynamics for supporting this program.
