As a leader in the Eugene arts and culture community, the Hult Center provides students with access to the arts through workshops, master classes and free student shows with professional artists.
Each season through our Hult Presents program, the Hult Center works with professional artists to provide workshops for community members of all ages. Workshops are usually free, or a minimal registration fee, and allow students to work directly with professional artists, exploring their craft in a more interactive way.
In February 2020, we hosted three workshops with the Chicago based performance collective, Manual Cinema. The workshops were offered to middle & high school students, college students and adult professionals. Each workshop focused on Manual Cinema’s approach to storytelling and live cinema techniques. Students learned about the artist’s techniques, and then were able to present their very own story using all the skills they learned.

The Hult Center works with schools and training centers to offer master classes by professional artists. Each master class is tailored to the group and taught by one of the professional artists touring at the Hult Center.
In November 2019, dancers from Movement Art Is, touring with the show Love Heals All Wounds, offered a master class at the University of Oregon. Students had the opportunity to learn choreography directly from the show and discuss the powerful combination of text and movement in the creative process and performance art as social action.
The Hult Center through our Hult Presents program brings student shows to provide the areas students of all grades with opportunities to attend high-caliber performances at the Hult Center. For many students, this is their first time experiencing a live professional performance. In addition to seeing a show, students often have the chance to attend a post-show talk back or Q&A session with the artists. These post-show opportunities, along with study guides, allow the students to gain a holistic understanding of the performance and how it integrates into their studies and life.
If you are interested in having your students attend one of these free performances, please contact our Education & Community Engagement Department at HultEducation@eugene-or.gov.
CAREERS IN THE ARTS
Are your high school students considering a career in the Arts? Starting October 13, 2020 students are invited to join Hult Center’s Education & Engagement program every second Tuesday of the month for our first ever “Virtual Careers in the Arts!” course. Once a month, participants will get to interact and learn from an arts administrator at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts. Each session will focus on a different field and will provide participants with information on what it takes to follow that career path. Students will be able to livestream these sessions and ask questions in real time. Recordings of every session will also be available on our YouTube Page. We will hear from a wide variety of fields such as Marketing, Tech, Programming and many more!
If you or your students are interested in attending these sessions, you can email our Education & Engagement Team and they will send interested individuals the necessary Zoom information, as well as reminders as new sessions are approaching.
