BENEFITING: Developing Artists Theater Company
Developing Artists recognizes that access to arts education isn't equal for every child. That is why we strive to level the playing field by providing FREE quality performing arts training to kids most in need. Through donations last year, DA was able to offer 98 underserved kids a spot into our program. This year help us reach even more.
Please champion a young artist today.
"Arts education isn't something we add on after we've achieved other priorities, like raising test scores and getting kids into college. It's actually critical for achieving those priorities in the first place."
- First Lady, Michelle Obama
Why should you support Developing Artists?
"The arts are an integral part of a well-rounded education, and a recent school survey by the Department revealed that millions of American students, particularly in high-need schools, have either minimal or no access to instruction in the arts. To miss out on arts learning opportunities is to miss out on gaining the very skills and habits of mind we know are essential to succeeding in life and earning a livelihood in the 21st century: creativity; observing as opposed to simply seeing; identifying as well as solving problems; thinking outside the box; and communicating with not just words but with images, sounds, and motion — these and more are inherently part of a regularly scheduled, quality arts education program."
- Doug Herbert: Office of Innovation and Improvement, US Department of Education
