Martin Lokboj, left, Willie Wysinger and Emma Flynn display their drumming technique. The South Sacramento Visual and Performing Arts Academy was started to fill a void left by budget cuts that have taken arts out of schools. This year the group added a new drum line hoping to attract middle-school boys who are most at-risk. The drum line is using Home Depot buckets to practice drumming. The group is asking Book of Dreams for drums, slings and carriers so drummers can perform at academy performances and community events.
