PERFORMING ARTS - THEATRE & DANCE

Woodlawn Farm Historic Site / Underground Railroad

Woodlawn is a historic home in Jacksonville, IL. Twice a year there are "bus tours" that visit the site. Woodlawn Farm provides costumes for the kids to dress up in and allows them to be interpreters at the historic site.

Improv Classes & Theatre Performances

JDCF has a small "STAGE" area that allows for small theatre productions.

There is stage lighting and it allows the kids the opportunity to practice their acting & improv skills.

VISUAL ARTS - PHOTOGRAPHY

Art of the "Un-Selfie"

Tiffany Warmowski, of Warmowski Photography, led the kids in a workshop teaching them that photos can be more than just "selfies".  The kids learned how the right angle can make all the difference.

CLASS SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

JDCF is always looking for CLASS SPONSORS.

If you or your business would like more information on HOW TO SPONSOR one of our classes, you can contact us at 217-473-1303.

For a set "fee", you can sponsor a class and provide TEN students in our community a free entrance to that class; that they may not have been able to afford to attend otherwise.

Sponsored students will be chosen by teachers at the area schools. We will rotate schools, and age groups, and make sure it is not the same students chosen each time.  We want to give many students a chance to find their creative side.

For More Information  Call 217-473-1303 or
