Activities for Families

Arts-integration activities for families to do at home.

Virtual Field Trip Fridays – Wolf Trap Institute, Vienna, Virginia

Wolf Trap has created virtual performances, called Field Trip Fridays. The Field Trip performance is designed to be a child’s first experience with “live” performance. These seven, pre-recorded video performances are presented to you by Wolf Trap Institute Teaching Artists and can be found on our Field Trip Fridays webpage. An individual handout accompanies each performance – these are educational tools to enhance the child’s experience at home.  Videos will be released each Friday through July 24, 2020. Please also follow our Wolf Trap Education Twitter, @WolfTrap_Edu for notifications about future Field Trip Fridays.
