The company has performed locally and nationally since 1993 for up to 20,000 audience members annually.

A 171-page curriculum guide called Youth on the Move: a teacher's guide to co-creating original movement/theater performances with teens was created in 2002 (funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts) to chronicle the process of the group's creation of original productions.

Weʼve taken our studio on the road by converting an old school bus into a traveling art studio. Our goal is to spread the love of art and our environment, by encouraging kids to do eco-friendly crafts. We show how we can take everyday items we find around the house – toilet paper rolls, egg cartons, tin cans – and turn these ordinary items into unique artwork.
We are devoted to promoting creativity and self-expression, and dedicated to raising awareness about our environment. The kids hop on the bus and quickly turn on their imaginations with a wide assortment of "trash" that will become their new-found treasures.
Laurie has taught hundreds of kids in the ten-plus years sheʼs been teaching art classes in her studio. To Laurie, it's all about promoting self-expression and self-confidence in children – and pride. She has a natural ability to look at things differently and create incredible artwork out of "nothing". She calls her approach "fun art" (as opposed to "fine art"), a roll-up-your-sleeves, messy kind of art kids love. The emphasis is on fun and the creative process.
Known for her easy-going nature, infectious laugh, and can-do spirit, Laurie is excited about this new adventure. This inspired eco-minded gal, along with her brother Rich, looks forward to coming to your neighborhood and sharing her passion and enthusiasm, while spreading her love for art and the environment. In a word, itʼs FAB (Fun Art Bus)!

Founded in 1898, the Geographic Society of Chicago (GSC) is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization incorporated in Illinois. Its interests, however, stretch beyond Chicago. During the early years, our organization took the lead in many conservation and educational initiatives, including lobbying Congress to prevent the damming of the Yellowstone River. Today, the GSC is composed of members and supporters who are not only professional geographers and teachers but interested members of the public as well. Our mission is to advance the art and science of geography; encourage the study of geography in the schools; recognize outstanding achievements in the field; provide leadership on geographic issues; and promote public understanding and appreciation of Earth's people and places.
As we progress into this new millennium, the GSC is committed to the same goals of our early founders. At a time when geography and geospatial technology are becoming more and more essential in all sectors—from healthcare to government to commerce, geo
For the past three years, we have developed and managed after-school and summer camp Geography Clubs, starting initially at the Union League Boys & Girls Club in Humboldt Park. We also wrote curriculum for an eight-week program in Waukegan, Illinois, called Cool Summer Experience, which was STEM-based with a geographic foundation. In all these efforts, our goals have been to build students’ geographic knowledge, foster environmental stewardship, expose and train students in geospatial technology, and empower them to use these skills to solve community problems.
Having received an Outstanding Program award in 2012 from the National Boys & Girls Clubs of America, we have been invited by the Union League to expand to a second site, Club One in the Pilsen neighbourhood. However, we must secure funding before we can accomplish this.

Ready made beautifully scented candles made from used cooking oil which are currently offered in 9 scents: Kaffir Lime Flower, Sandalwood, Darjeeling Flower, Clove and Cinnamon, Fig Milk, Fresh Grass, Spice Wood, Cassis & recently introduced Citronella (to combat mosquitoes and the west nile virus).

Inspire, educate and support the practice of nonviolence.
The mission of the Metta Center is to inspire, educate and support the practice of nonviolence. We pay special attention to educators, activists, and the media, but remain a resource for anyone who wishes to explore the integrative power that King called Love in Action and Gandhi called the greatest force at the disposal of humanity. "Metta" (loving-kindness) is one word for that power.

CREATED BY A DENTIST. POWERED BY NATURE.(TM)
The Natural Dentist was originally created by a dentist to provide effective oral care for his patient's teeth and gums. Because our products are formulated with a scientific blend of natural ingredients, you don't have to choose between natural and effective. The Natural Dentist line of oral care products is made without alcohol, artificial dyes, harsh chemicals, bleach, or artificial ingredients. To learn more about The Natural Dentist, please visit our website at www.thenaturaldentist.com.
The Natural Mattress Store is located in San Rafael, CA. We offer the biggest selection of healthy durable organic mattresses anywhere with 21 different options plus organic crib mattresses. Our Eco-Cloud mattresses feature removable zipper covers using organic cotton quilted to organic wool with 100% natural latex for padding. Some have pocket coil springs with latex and others are all latex. We also carry the Keetsa line of green mattresses as well as pillows from Holy Lamb Organics, Serenity Pillows, and bedding from Coyuchi. In addition we have a wide variety of beds with a focus on platform beds.
