Living Arts’ Detroit Wolf Trap program, including Baby Artsplay!™, offers artist residencies and workshops in school and community settings for children 3 months to six years. By integrating the arts into learning, our residencies help support a child's path toward kindergarten readiness, promoting success in Detroit schools and communities.

Through Living Arts Detroit Wolf Trap, our teaching artists both educate young children using performing arts strategies for early learners and train adult participants (teachers, childcare providers or parents) to use these strategies to help children learn. Living Arts Detroit Wolf Trap programs are proven to increase children's emergent literacy, math and science skills, social-emotional development, and approaches to learning. In addition to multi-session residencies for children embedded with teacher or parent training, we also offer stand-alone professional development for early childhood professionals in varying formats as well as family workshops.

Living Arts’ Detroit Wolf Trap teaching artist team includes Spanish-bilingual artists and artists experienced in teaching English language-learning youth and youth with disabilities.

Living Arts is proud to be the Detroit affiliate of the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts. The Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts is a program of the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts.
