About the Program

“Thank you all for an inspiring and magnificent morning at the Skirball and Noah's Ark. The teachers have said it was one of their favorite PDs we have ever done (and we have done a lot!).” 

Schedule your professional development workshop aboard Noah’s Ark at the Skirball! Groups of teachers—from schools, districts, camps, after-school programs, and beyond —will explore the transformative power of puppetry, storytelling, and team building through movement, music, and theater arts.

  • Introduction to standards-aligned teacher resources and lessons inspired by the Noah’s Ark at the Skirball: The Art of Imagination curriculum 
  • Tools and templates to design your own interdisciplinary lessons that support core content across subject areas.

“I wanted to thank you and your team for such a wonderful day on Friday!  All the teachers loved spending the afternoon at the Skirball.  Your team approach and organizational skills were so nice to see.  We all noted the warmth and support you not only provide one another, but to your visitors.”
