Education Programs

Jasper Community Arts, Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools, and Holy Trinity School proudly announce the Education Programming for 2018-2019.  For over 20 years, these partners have worked together to provide professional arts experiences, both in the schools and at the Jasper Arts Center, for Jasper students, K-12. We believe in developing an appreciation of the arts at a young age. Recent studies have shown that individuals with some arts background are more creative and bring the necessary skills to adapt in a rapidly changing world market. But...we hope the kids just have fun, too!

Many of our series performers will also be conducting school performances, master classes, or workshops. Several of our visual artists will also be found in classrooms. In addition, some guest artists are provided just for our school programming.

Briefly... 

Programming for Grades K-2 

Page Turner Adventures & The Mixed Up Fairy Tales

Run, jump, climb, and interact directly with the performers to break a spell or Beauty will sleep for 100 years! The audience interacts directly with the characters on stage, convincing Red Riding Hood to give up her cape, discovering the secret under grandma's bed, and retrieving a golden spoon from a REAL 10 foot tall giant! Kids will recognize their favorite storybook characters in the original fractured fairy tale. 

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Indiana Arts Commission, the Crane Group and General Mills Foundation.  Additional funding provided by the City of Jasper, Friends of the Arts and the Community Foundation Alliance.

We the People 

We the People  is a musical revue that brings American Civics lessons to life and promises to make Social Studies exciting and accessible. 

Students will have a blast learning about the three branches of government, the First Amendment, presidential elections, democracy, the judicial process, and more. 

Barreling through a variety of musical styles relevant to today's youth, including rock, R & B, and hip-hop, We the People instills American prides in audiences of all ages - and perhaps even inspire them to get involved and make a difference.

Programming for Middle School

Call of the Wild 

Jack London's classical tale comes to life on stage. This multi-media adventure mixes performance and storytelling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent offspring of a St. Bernard and Scottish Collie...

Kidnapped from his lavish life on a California estate and sent to work as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush of the 1800s, Buck becomes the most famous dog in the northland's history and discovers the endurance and strength of his wild, primal ancestors as their call courses through his blood. 

The production uses 180-degree projection that surrounds the performer and provides scenic, artistic, and historical context to the show through their content.
