Student & Teacher Resources

Middle School & High School Student Events

Parker Arts presents unique skill-building and professional development opportunities for middle school and high school students. These events – like Portfolio Day, Shakespeare Festival and Technical Theater Bootcamp –  are dynamic, educational and social.


Parker Arts Portfolio Day

An enrichment opportunity for young artists aspiring to major in the arts. During this event, teacher-selected student artists will have their portfolios reviewed by university art professors, receive personalized constructive critiques on their work from both professionals and peers and expand their knowledge through hands-on workshops. Their experience will culminate in a professionally curated art show in the PACE Center’s Art Gallery, featuring their own works of art.
