PB&J On Tour at Schools
GPAC recognizes that not all children are able to attend the Peanut Butter & Jam sessions that are hosted at our location throughout the season because of transportation issues, the price of admission, or both. The PB & J On Tour Program takes artists to selected schools all over the mid south are to perform for students in grades K-2. For the 2018-2019 Tour, GPAC will partner with Aspire Coleman Elementary (38128), Memphis Delta Prep (38106), Memphis Oral School for the Deaf (38138) and Riverwood Elementary (38106).
Presented in part by funding provided by International Paper.
How it works:
GPAC schedules two different shows to be performed at your school in the fall and spring. Shows are specifically geared toward K-2 and vary in themes (music, dance, theater and cultural arts). GPAC provides all the necessary sound equipment (if schools do not have a sound system) to better enhance the performance. Surveys will be conducted after each performance along with a focus group at the end of the GPAC season.
This FREE program is funded through the GPAC Arts Education Fund and local grants.
