The Crayon Collection is enhancing art programs in schools by recycling crayons left behind at restaurants and distributing them to public elementary and preschools.
The arts teach empathy. The arts express and evoke emotion, enabling us to feel how others feel and find common ground. The arts help eliminate prejudice by encouraging multiple perspectives. And of course, the arts can be fun!
I had the honor of watching the Walk the Walk National Championship. Hurley challenged 30 schools across the nation to compete in the fashion show for a chance at winning $25,000 for their school's arts program.
