Mission and Approach


Improv Parenting is a non-profit arts organization offering improvisational theater and visual arts education and family-friendly performances. Our mission is to facilitate personal development and creative expression through improv and visual arts across ages; and to connect artists and audiences in playful, supportive environments. 

Approach & Delivery

We teach improvisational theater skills and visual arts techniques with a focus on process over product and experiential learning through trial-and-error and exploration. For us this means providing experiences that are supportive, collaborative, playful and fun.

Improv Parenting offers ‘pop-up’ programming throughout the Twin Cities. We partner with libraries, parks and recreation, non-profits, schools, community education and businesses to increase accessibility to the arts by bringing teaching artists and materials to communities looking to provide experiential arts education.

Ronald McDonald House Charities Upper Midwest
