Exposure to art and it's creation is an important part of a child's upbringing and education. The opportunity to appreciate others' art. The opportunity to be creative oneself. The child who receives these opportunities is far the richer. The Arts for the School programs fills this need marvelously for the North Tahoe area and I support their efforts wholeheartedly.

George Washington reminds us, “To encourage literature and the arts is a duty which every good citizen owes his country.” Raine Howe has embraced that duty and is carrying the banner in Tahoe-Truckee with “Arts for the Schools.” Support extended to “Arts for the Schools” is repaid time and time again.

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have attended on-stage performances sponsored by Arts For The Schools for many years. Under the leadership of Executive Director, Raine Howe, more and better programs are reaching our rural audience. Most recently, AFTS has added a series of visual art/healing art workshops. I attended one of these workshops and was impressed by both the facilitation process and the talent of the workshop leader.

The caliber of performers Arts for the Schools provides in our community for both adults and children is phenomenal. I've attended at least half of all the programs provided in the last 10 years and feel honored to have experienced such wonderful education and entertainment. We need to continue to support this valuable organization that shapes so many children's perceptions of art in a positive way. Barbara Kramen-Kahn, Ph.D.
