Wabash area children have been given the opportunity to fight off early summer boredom through a program offered at the Honeywell Center.

The Wabash Visual and Program Arts program, which is funded by the Honeywell Foundation, are “intensive, multi-week summer programs allowing participants to work closely with professional artists and teachers specializing in live theater and visual arts,” according to the program’s website.

The Honeywell Foundation took over the theater program a few summers back.

The program offers opportunities for children of all ages, including an offering for three separate age groups performing theatrical plays at the Honeywell Center.
