In an educational environment defined by shrinking fine arts budgets and a system that places little to no focus on the exploration of creativity and self-expression, all praise goes to operations like Austin Bat Cave. This little nonprofit holds regular creative writing classes at local middle and high schools, teaches songwriting with local artists (we're looking at you, Neiliyo and the Octopus Project), and even holds a summer playwriting and performance workshop. Want to break your child out of the doldrums of a basic education? Enrolling them at Austin Bat Cave is as easy as ABC.
