And the winner is…local kids!
Don’t miss the Tahoe Arts Project’s No Show fundraiser Oscar Party on February 24, 2013 at the time and place of your choice. TAP invites all of us to donate the money we would have spent to attend their annual event instead – with no pressure to perform.
Very creative TAP!
Sometimes the Tahoe Arts Project art programs are the only way local school children get to experience real theater. And, some of you may have even performed with TAP.
The Tahoe Arts Project (TAP) has been bringing professional performing artists to 11 local schools for 26 years. As a non-profit, bi-state organization it is only funded by generous donations.
So have fun this year at the No Show Oscar Party – and send a donation into TAP instead! No need to venture out in the cold or have your party dress dry cleaned, just stay home and enjoy the oscars from the comfort of your couch. Take that money you would’ve spent on a drink and instead help enrich our children’s education.

About the Tahoe Arts Project:
The Tahoe Arts Project (TAP) has been bringing professional performing artists to local school children and the community for 25 years. As a non-profit, bi-state organization it is only funded through donations.
TAP was established in 1987 by a group of parents, professional musicians and teachers who wanted to expose children to professional performing artists. For the past 26 years, TAP’s primary focus has been the production of in-school residencies. TAP’s artists-in-schools programs meet the need for high quality fine arts activities for the region’s children. TAP also produces a public performance series for the enjoyment of our community. TAP’s programs include acclaimed performing artists from various genres and cultures and has been nationally recognized as a role model for other arts-in-education organizations.
TAP reaches over 5,000 students, in grades Kindergarten through 12, within 10 schools in El Dorado, Douglas, and Alpine counties of California and Nevada. The artists whom students meet through the TAP programs serve as role models that demonstrate the values of self-discipline and the pursuit of excellence. Current research validates TAP’s philosophy that these experiences also help students develop their own creative and problem solving abilities, foster intellectual development and success in all academic areas.
