We check in with Allison Bencar to discuss how she’s staying busy and why it’s important to keep the arts alive during this time.
Singer, dancer, musician, artist, teacher. All of these describe Alison Brazil, one of the dozens of teaching artists who create and lead arts-centered learning through TPAC’s education programs in schools.
In a lively preschool classroom in Nashville, children eagerly pick up their pretend paint buckets and use imaginary brushes to paint triangles, circles, and squares in the air.

Innovative TPAC programs create opportunities for the arts to change the community and influence life and learning in significant ways.
