The Dr. Bowie Scholarship Foundation Village of Providence provides annual scholarships, summer and after school tutoring and performing arts, nutrition and wellness program with balanced meals and exercise. Arts in Focus specializes in free after school programming and is implemented in conjunction with the ?Character Counts Curriculum? for all youth while targeting those from low-income families and those who are at risk for academic failure. The program has been implemented in middle and high schools throughout San Antonio. The Character Counts Curriculum focuses on character development, drug prevention and supplemental, academic tutoring. The after school curriculum focuses on providing opportunities for students in grades K-12 to develop and express creative abilities through the writing and/or performance of musical and dramatic productions. Students develop skills in the visual and performing arts including Art, Music, Dance and Movement, Drama, video production, backstage production and self-expression. We have written musical plays involving slavery, racism in the classrooms, drive-by shootings and shootings on school campuses. We have performed hit musicals such as ?Annie,? ?Grease,? ?Guys and Dolls,? featuring our Middle and High School students and ?Humpty Dumpty, Was He Pushed or Did He Fall?" featuring our elementary level students.Our main, programmatic goal is to produce one or more musical productions per Fall and Summer sessions.
