Education & Outreach


Who we are:

The Paramount Center for the Arts includes an Education and Outreach Department that supports the mission of the Paramount by enhancing and expanding arts opportunities in Central Minnesota beyond the walls of the theater and visual arts center. As one of four departments at the Paramount, Education Outreach includes a Director who works with other staff to see that the arts are available in the community to foster artistic literacy and to explore central human themes that will deepen understanding, foster curiosity, expand perspective and build relationships.


What we do:

The Education Outreach Department works to identify and address a wide variety of needs in artful and compelling ways. From reflecting on a businesses’ mission statement to dancing math with second graders, we can help businesses, organizations, agencies or schools to explore new ideas, grapple with old problems, apply creative strategies and deepen an understanding of the community and world in which we all work and play.   The Director of this division works with local artists to provide training and connection to the larger community in meaningful, creative and sometimes surprising ways! And not only with visual artists but also with musicians, dancers, writers, poets, sculptors, photographers and more. The arts belong to all, and we strive to make the arts accessible to all.


We offer services from Teaching-Artist Training to Technical Outreach.
