In the Schools & In Our Community
We believe in developing an appreciation of the arts for the young and the young-at-heart. Recent studies have shown that individuals with some arts background are more creative and bring the necessary skills to adapt in a rapidly changing world market. The creative arts can also offer an alternative outlet for the elderly to communicate with others.
Several of our series performers will conduct master classes, or workshops. There are also opportunities for local students to meet with professional visual artists.

How to Survive Middle School
Comedian Robert Post barely survived Middle School. Struggling because of various learning disabilities, he found that making people laugh saved him. In this brand new multimedia performance, kids talk to kids in a compelling, funny and educational show. Dealing with real issues affecting students today including social media, testing, bullying and peer pressure these video testimonials by kids and their advocates (along with a generous dose of Post’s signature humor) is sure to resonate with school and public audiences alike.
