Creative Arts Center Participates in
" #Giving Tuesday " Beginning November 28th
#Giving Tuesday started six years ago and is a global day of giving fueled by social media. The Creative Arts Center is a project of the Fannin Community Foundation,Inc., a 501(c)3 charity. The Foundation is proud to be participating in the #Giving Tuesday event.
The arts center is the cultural hub for the North Texas corridor, offering a multitude of activities involving the arts, music and theater and providing educational opportunities in the arts, especially for children. A recent press release from the Texas Music Office cites: "Much of Texas' future will depend on a highly capable workforce, innovation and entrepreneurship, clusters in knowledge industries, the presence of world-class research universities and other institutions of higher learning, and public policy that supports growth and development. Embedded in all of the above is the interrelationship between creativity, innovation, and quality of life, of which music and the arts play a central role." The purpose of the arts and music in a community cannot be stressed enough. After Black Friday, it's time to "give back" and that's where #Giving Tuesday on November 28th comes in.
"As the end of the year approaches, donations become part of our giving season," said Lisa Avila, Executive Director of the Creative Arts Center. "From Giving Tuesday on November 28th until the end of the year, the Fannin Community Foundation, aiding our community through the Creative Arts Center, hopes that anyone wishing to donate to our cause-providing opportunities for children and adults to create and nurturing their creativity."
Donations should be directed to Creative Arts Center, 200 W. 5th Street, Bonham, TX. 75418 and all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. The Fannin Comminity Foundation invites you to help fund the 2018 Children's prorgam with your gift and participate in #Giving Tuesday. For more information please call 903-640-2196.

     Kidz Krew is at it again with a workshop beginning November 28 at 4 PM. The Creative Arts Center will be offering this 3-week workshop for $50 and the class runs each Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 5 PM for three weeks. A wide variety of skills will be covered in this comprehensive workshop, including singing, dancing, improv, word games, projection skills and more! Theater classes teach responsibility, how to work as a team, and give children a sense of self-confidence. The ability to speak in front of a group is also a valuable skill that generally improves with theater classes.
     Children ages six and up may participate. Parents may sign up their children by coming by the Creative Arts Center, located at 200 W. 5th Street in Bonham. The workshop will be taught by CAC Executive Director Lisa Avila. For more information, call the center at 903-640-2196.
