The Bologna Performing Arts Center at Delta State University is offering arts education boxes and books for children ages 5-8 for the upcoming fall semester. The program functions like a subscription-based service, so families can choose the frequency and price level of boxes they would like to receive for the months of September, October, and November.
Boxes will be distributed twice monthly on the 15th and 30th and will include two arts projects, step-by-step instructions for project completion, and links to how-to videos available online, as well as a children’s book that complements each box’s theme. The how-to videos will be pre-recorded and made available online, so families can work through the projects on their own schedule and will not need access to webcams or audio equipment.
This semester’s theme for the subscription boxes will be “Our Community” and will encourage children and their families to explore everything our great Delta communities have to offer. Boxes will integrate arts lessons featuring elements like one-point perspective, color theory, impressionism from Van Gogh and Monet, as well as tie-ins to the community, like transportation, agriculture, and architecture. Each box will contain all needed materials for project completion, as well as opportunities to explore specific outdoor locations in Cleveland and other Delta areas.
Box subscriptions are limited and payment must be received upfront. Pricing begins at $10 per box. In order to process registration for the first month’s boxes, the arts education office must receive your family’s order form and payment by Sept. 1. The first box will be available for pickup at the BPAC on Tuesday, Sept. 15. There will be an additional shipping fee per box if families would like the boxes shipped to their houses. The order form is available online at bolognapac.com/education.
This program is funded in part by the King’s Daughters and Sons Circle Number Two and the Cleveland Walmart. For more information on the subscription box program and other fall 2020 programming, contact the arts education office at 662-846-4844 or go online to bolognapac.com/education.
