The LAUSD Elementary Arts Program is scheduled for a 100 percent cut for 2012-2013. Under current budgeting, The Arts Branch administrative staff is budgeted to be reduced to one position. 10 years of growth are set to be lost, and the District may never recover. This is the time to fight before we lose what is left of what is considered one of the best elementary arts programs in the nation!

Thank so many of you who came out for the first Save the Arts Benefit last night at the JFK Family of Schools! The performances were outstanding, the arts was fantastic and varied. The labor of love donated from so many people behind the scenes, including the students of the Los Angeles High School for the Arts, made the night unforgettable. Not to mention the incomparable Chester Whitmore and crew closing the night.

A thousand thanks to the tireless, fearless, visionary, superhuman Suzanne Nichols for shepherding the benefit. Huge appreciation to the brilliant Jane Castillo for organizing the art auction! Here's to a future of support and recognition for arts education in LAUSD!

See for details, and to make an donation to the cause: Saving positions and providing resources for our schools!

Austin performed at the benefit with fellow classmates. Thanks you, students, for standing up for your teachers! More links to come.
