Smith is an instructor at The Art Place-Mountain View who teaches actors, writers and directors of every discipline how to increase their core awareness of what dropping into character really means.
Victoria Spencer Smith grew up in Atlanta an only child. She says that is probably why she still loves playing cops and robbers. She does not have an accent unless she needs to call on her Southern roots. She visits with her grandmother to enjoy the company, and get the accent right. Smith loves a good laugh and making everyone around her a little happier and free. Her greatest joy (outside of working with dynamic, creative people who trust in the synergy of the universe) is watching her son grow so gracefully and pure of soul. She can always take a lesson or two from an eight year old. Her magic is just around the corner willing the characters and the story to come to life through hard work, and of course blood, sweat and tears. She's …

The Girls Fusion Art Program, a collaboration among The Art Place, Mountain View Arts Alliance and Cobb County Girls Court, addresses the special needs of adolescent girls in the judicial system.
Northeast Cobb's The Art Place and Mountain View Arts Alliance recently accepted a 2011 State GRPCA Cultural Affairs Program Award for its "Fusion" Cobb County Girls Court Program. The Girls Fusion Art Program allowed 15 young women to discover that art can be an emotional outlet. They were given this opportunity as an alternative to more negative experiences, such as youth detention centers. Many of the participants commented that they learned patience, learned how to cope with their feelings and learned to express themselves through art. The program was success in helping impact these youth in a critical time in their lives.
