THE STORY:

 

Hi, I’m Kendra.  I believe arts education is vital in our schools because I know first-hand the power and voice it can give a young mind.

Before I knew how to make sense of my world as a newly arrived immigrant, before I could master the language needed to articulate my thoughts – I found my voice in art.  I drew what I was afraid to share, and painted what I did not know how to say.  In in those creative moments, the playing fields felt leveled, I knew that I mattered and that I would defy the challenges I faced.  There is no doubt in my mind the great influence arts education had on the development of my creativity and self-confidence that very much defines me today.

Arts education does this.  So when you donate to Performing Arts Workshop, this is what you facilitate. This 50th year old local non-profit works relentlessly to ensure that students with less access to arts education receive the privileges they deserve. Workshop residencies are placed in schools, afterschool centers, homeless shelters, and juvenile halls to empower the students who need it most.

Today, almost a third of schools in California have no music, dance, theatre, media arts or visual arts available whatsoever, which is a travesty.  With recent political development, the future could be even bleaker for our underprivileged youth.  Let’s show a little love and invest in their future.  Donate today!
