Arts & Culture
Drama education builds self-confidence, sparks creativity, and boosts academic achievement. The Drama Matters Afterschool Program Guide is a weekly program consisting of 60 minute sessions segmented for beginner, intermediate, and advanced members. Each session can be adapted to fit the age of participants. Sessions consist of a short warm-up; a main activity of games, script work or performance; and a 10-minute cool-down. The Lessons in Stagecraft Program Guide includes many different ways for members to express themselves creatively, from costumes to set design or directing.
National Fine Arts Exhibit
The National Fine Arts Exhibit encourages artistic recognition of Club members ages 6 to 18 by displaying drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, mixed media, and sculpture at local and regional exhibits. A panel of distinguished judges selects works for inclusion in the National Fine Arts Exhibit, which is displayed the ensuing year at BGCA events, including the annual National Conference.
