School Initiative

All Access Arts in-school and after-school programs have begun! We are in 16 schools across Oklahoma City providing interactive education in visual arts, theatre, music, dance, graphic design, and creative writing. At the end of each semester, students showcase their art in a cumulative event.

Did you know just $15 can provide a student with art supplies for a full semester? Donate now!

Creative Aging

All Access Arts places teaching artists in 18 senior sites across the city with weekly programming that reaches those with dementia, Alzheimers, and other physical and cognitive challenges.

“We, at Canterbury have found that this Art Program draws the residents out of themselves and into a creative and colorful place where they can express themselves freely.  This is especially meaningful to those who are dealing with dementia in its various stages.” -Mary Shrum, Program Director at The Fountains at Canterbury
