Camp showcases are fully equipped with sound and stage production, offering a truly professional performing arts opportunity for students interested in stage performance.

In addition to performance opportunities, the arts education department at the Bologna Performing Arts Center benefits from the exceptional facilities and expertise housed across the quadrangle of Delta State’s campus in the Fielding L. Wright Art Center, home to Delta State’s Department of Art. Professors from DSU’s Art department consistently teach at CORE Arts each year, and visual arts courses are often housed in the Wright Art Building. The space includes a ceramics lab, digital design lab, dark room for film development, and several studios for painting, drawing, sculpting.
