Save the Earth: Help the Arts

If you're taking the time out of your day to read blogs, or blog yourself it's a pretty safe assumption that the creative arts has been a force in your life. We didn't all ended up here together by happenstance. Each of us had our artistic passion spurred along the way by a class, camp or teacher that gave us a blank canvas and told us to create what we loved. Twenty years later, we all created blogs. If they had only known...


Since today is Earth Day, we're all focused on consuming less and recycling more. That something less than you haven't consumed today, can be put towards helping a child be impacted by the arts in the same way you have been. Even $5 or $10 goes a long way.

A very worthy DC Arts organization is seeking donations to send kids to Theater Camp. And my very talented friend, Julia Smith, is helping them. Click here to read more.

Here's a little more about The Theater Lab in DC:

The Theatre Lab is committed to transforming lives through theatre education. We are the largest and most comprehensive theatre education program in Washington, DC, providing both the artistic and real-life benefits of quality theatre education to more than 1,400 youth and adults each year.

Our Summer Camps for Kids

Our Summer Acting Camps for Kids, for children ages 5–13, are taught by the area’s best professional theatre artists and educators. Camp activities are designed to spark children’s imagination, build their self-confidence and stretch their skills—all in a fun and friendly environment. From exploring African and Eastern theatre traditions to diving into Shakespeare and putting it all together in a public performance, it’s an experience that a child will never forget.
