BlackBox Foundation announces the launch of our new educational program: The BlackBox Studio!

The BlackBox Studio was an educational arts program featuring arts classes, workshops, and performance opportunities, all offered to community members at the lowest possible pricing. It was the result of a year of planning and recruiting. Classes were offered in Art, Photography, Music, Theatre, and Writing, all taught by eight highly qualified local instructors.
