About Our Artists

Young Audiences of Northern California's Teaching Artists are highly-skilled, thoroughly trained, professionally valued and proficient in their art form. We are dedicated to the ongoing professional development of our teaching artists as educators and advocates. To that end, we offer year-round opportunities and resources to strengthen skillsets, build community, and encourage innovative and insightful program design.
