BASF has recently donated funds to sponsor Darke County Center for the Arts’ 2011-2012 Arts in Education program. “BASF has been a great supporter of DCCA for many years; their commitment to enhance the quality of life in our community through the arts is very much appreciated,” stated Executive Director Julie Strait. BASF is the world’s leading chemical company. The Greenville, Ohio plant produces coatings for the automotive industry as well as resins for undercoating on vehicles.

Darke County Center for the Arts presents performing artists to students at all grade levels in Darke County and Greenville City Schools during the school year through the Arts In Education program. Lyle Cogen visited students in grades 4 through 6 the week of September 12 with her program Sticks and Stones, a message on recognizing and dealing with bullying in schools. Kuniko Yamamoto artfully shared the culture, Masks, Mime, and Music of Japan with students in grades K-3 the week of September 26. Robert Post will educate, entertain, and inspire creativity with his program Post Comedy Theatre for High School students the week of October 17th, as well as Junior High school students on December 7 & 8.

During the past season Darke County Center for the Arts served over 11,000 youth and adults through various activities. Sponsorships for Arts In Education and other DCCA programs are still available.
