National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) is a coast-to-coast celebration of culture in America. Held every October and coordinated by Americans for the Arts, NAHM is the largest celebration of the arts and humanities in the nation.

President Obama issued a White House proclamation that states that “we must recognize the contributions of the arts and humanities not only by supporting the artists of today, but  also by giving opportunities to the creative thinkers of tomorrow.”

Writers in the Schools (WITS) understands the power of developing imaginations through arts education. We do it everyday in schools across the city.  We even do it on the weekends!  So, bring your “creative thinkers of tomorrow” to Discovery Green any Saturday in October, 10:30-11:30 AM, to celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month. WITS teams up with Houston Public Library (HPL) Express and Discovery Green to provide Houston’s only year-around free and open writing workshop for children. See you there!
