This semester BPAC Arts Ed has teamed up with Jim Henson Boyhood Home Museum in Leland, Walter Anderson Museum of Art in Ocean Springs, and The Delta Blue Museum in Clarksdale to provide 3 months of one -of-a kind art lessons, crafts, artist information, music, stickers and 1-2 books, targeted to your child’s reading level. All boxes will include activities and ideas that your child can complete independently and a couple that you can do together as well!

The Mathews-Sanders Sculpture Garden
In August 1999, Pam Mathews moved to Cleveland where her husband David Potter had just been named the new President of Delta State University.
Pam, a painter, worked for the National Endowment for the Arts before moving south, and she called her new friend Nan Sanders, a fellow painter, to discuss the idea of developing a sculpture garden on the front lawn of the newly completed Bologna Performing Arts Center on the DSU campus.
The board of the sculpture garden is endeavoring to make the art of sculpture accessible to all, and has crafted several activities for elementary through high school students to learn more about the artwork of the sculpture garden. Teachers can take advantage of the following handouts, which detail sculpture vocabulary as well as scavenger hunts and connect-the-dots sheets of the 2017-2019 Installation Class. Giant Jenga sets are available for use in the sculpture garden so that students can collaboratively build their own large sculptures! Place a time limit on “construction,” and see what your class groups can create as they learn more about the art of sculpture.
Connect-the-Dots Worksheets: Recommended for elementary students
Sculpture Scavenger Hunt Worksheets: Recommended for elementary through high school students
Sculpture Vocabulary Worksheet: Recommended for all students
The Bologna Performing Arts Center also has access to Giant Jenga games for classes to create their own temporary sculptures. Contact the Bologna Performing Arts Center to learn more about educational opportunities at the Mathews-Sanders Sculpture garden, or visit the official Sculpture Garden website.
