Maid-Rite Sandwich Shoppe supports DCCA’s Arts In Education

Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Maid-Rite Sandwich Shoppe for contributing funds in support of its Arts In Education (AIE) programs. DCCA, in conjunction with school administrative staff, annually takes performing artists to every grade of all Greenville City and Darke County public schools. "DCCA thanks the Maid Rite Sandwich Shoppe and all our sponsors who make our AIE programs possible." shared Andrea Jordan, DCCA Executive Director. "We are proud to present world class professional performing artists, in our local public schools, that engage and entertain students," concluded Jordan.

DCCA Arts In Education programs for the 2017-2018 season include health and wellness enthusiast KID POWER (grades K-3) presenting "Operation Lunch Line" a 3D interactive production on nutrition and exercise. Two time Grammy award winner TERRANCE SIMIEN & The ZYDECO EXPEREINCE (grades 4-6) returns by popular demand to present “Creole for Kidz" sharing Creole music and culture. SIX APPEAL (grades 7 & 8) brings a capella with hands-on critical listening to St. Clair Memorial Hall, and SIX GUITARS (grades 9-12) presents the "Voices of Chase Padgett" portraying 6 different guitar playing characters, each presenting their own story and style of music.  Arts In Education artists are generally in residence for a week as they tour all of the eight public school districts in Darke County.  These programs are open to the public; contact the DCCA office for more information. 

Most Arts In Education performers spend a week in Greenville traveling to all Greenville City and Darke County public schools, with the exception of the Jr. High program, which generally takes place at St. Clair Memorial Hall with students being bused in. According to Keith Rawlins, DCCA Artistic Director, “During the Artist’s residencies we always point out local landmarks to visit, with Maid-Rite Sandwich Shoppe making the list as a ‘must’ to truly experience the treasures we have in Darke County.” “The support of a local icon like Maid-Rite is greatly appreciated by DCCA and sends a powerful message to the children,” he concluded.

Darke County Center for the Arts presents and promotes performing and fine arts encouraging cultural enrichment. For more information on DCCA programs call DCCA at 937-547-0908 or check out their website at www.CenterForArts.net .
