From fine arts to performing arts and everything in-between, our teaching artists have a lesson or two for everyone.
Past Programming Highlights
In 2016, 39 of 54 elementary Oklahoma City Public School lost arts programs. Six were left with no full time visual art or music teacher and many of these serve high poverty students, who stand to gain the most from art education’s benefits. The All Access Arts Committee of the ACOKC prioritized the highest need schools as part of a bridging strategy to focus community support where no arts education and/or community arts partners currently exists.
This temporary bridging strategy paired community arts organizations with these schools while the OKCPS district aligned their staffing levels to meet our collective goal for arts education access. ACOKC managed evaluation, contracting and finances, while community arts organizations gained capacity and new relationships with schools through the process. In addition, OKCPS gained expertise on art forms and community resources.
