The arts have always been a staple in my life. I always enjoyed the visits to art museums, loved being able skip out of art class with a finished creation, to participate in a one-act drama or just to have the chance to know that someone around me was creating.
Without art in my own life, I probably would have been quite a menacing child full of too much energy that I wouldn’t have known what to do. It is up to people today to try and keep these arts in our schools for all generations now and to come, no matter what state you live in. Something that we have to remember is that without art in the world, it would be very bland place to live.
Here at Theatre Action Project are keeping the arts alive by providing kids with theatre/art related summer camps, after-school sessions as well as teaching kids to express themselves through the arts. TAP is the largest provider of arts education in the Central Texas. I am so glad that I can work for an organization that believes so strongly in the arts. Art is a chance for expression, a motivation inducer and a love that everyone should have the chance to enjoy.
