CRT’s Education Department strives to combat the isolation of individuals and communities by providing professional arts programming that encourages intimate human connection through storytelling.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” -- Roald Dahl

We at CRT believe that every human being has the right to excellent arts experiences. The arts are not a luxury reserved for the wealthy or better economic times. The arts are critical now. They are necessary everywhere, every day. And the arts are all around us. They are in the design of the chair you buy. They are in every book you read, television show you watch, and house you live in. The arts nourish us in practical, emotional, and spiritual ways every single day. So, why would we deprive our children and our communities of excellent art education? We at CRT are standing up for the importance of art in people’s lives. We invite you to join us.
