Authoring Action is a terrific program that offers young people an opportunity to channel their energy into creative expression rather than into more destructive activity. Their involvement in other arts community activities gives these kids a chance to be exposed to other forms of artistic expression as well as to perform and be recognized for their own individual talents.
Last month Authoring Action presented a program during Arts on Sunday’s “Forever Young” festival, which featured performances by students in R.J.Reynolds High School’s visual and performing arts groups.
