The arts are a valuable part of the core curriculum yet they've been reduced or eliminated in schools across the country. In addition to satisfying state Board of Education requirements exposing students to Humanities, bringing your learners to curriculum-connected performances at the BCPA offer a multi-disciplinary approach to receiving and retaining information.
Whether it's literature-based studies or lessons in math, technology or history, we all learn differently and many students need to make visual or action connections to text or concepts. The BCPA Student Spotlight Series proudly serves over 7,000 pupils a year in an historic world-class facility in the heart of downtown Bloomington.

The Rainbow Fish tells the story of the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colors of the rainbow. He is admired by the entire underwater world, and the other fish dream of owning one of his magnificent shiny scales. Resentment and isolation ensue when he is unwilling to give any of them away, and he becomes the loneliest fish in the ocean. Following the advice of a clever octopus, he gives each fish one of his scales. The more he shares, the happier he becomes.
