Student Days at Tao House
View Student Days Video
Student Days at Tao House brings students with serious interests in writing, drama, art, and photography to the site where America’s first major playwright created his most powerful work.
Students are welcomed to the site at 9:00 am with a light brunch followed by an interactive tour of Tao House led by an interpretive ranger from the National Park Service. The tour is designed to introduce students to O’Neill’s life story and his significant impact on world theatre.
Following the tour, workshops, led by professionals in the respective art forms, give students from as many as fifteen high schools in the Bay Area the opportunity to learn more about their chosen artistic interest. They then apply their new knowledge in the creation of a work that may later be displayed at Tao House.
During the lunch break, students are treated to a live performance of scenes from O’Neill’s plays. By the end of the day, students leave Tao House with a deeper appreciation of their respective art forms and an assignment to complete and polish their work for exhibit.
There is no charge to those attending Student Days. They are underwritten Individuals and organizations with an interest in providing students equal access to artistic and cultural experiences. The National Park Service provides transportation to the Tao House site.
