The Art in Schools Program is innovative collaboration between the Fine Arts Institute and Edmond Public Schools developed to meet need for formal art education in elementary schools. The program began in 2002 in three pilot schools and continues to grow as sustainable funding permits. Before implementation of the program, students did not receive art classes until 5th grade. With the program’s success, growth, and financial support, in 2019-20 fourteen elementary schools are receiving art education weekly. Each 45 minute class is led by a professional Fine Arts Institute instructor with the goal of stimulating creativity, knowledge, self-discovery, communication and problem solving skills…all key elements to a successful, well rounded education. Currently the program focuses on 3rd and 4th grade students, however all need and deserve art education. Our long term goal is to provide all 1st– 4th grade students in Edmond with art education in by 2022.
As the Edmond community continues to grow so does the need for additional funding sources. The average cost per student per year is $50, this is where you can make a difference.
Don’t let your child be the one that isn’t receiving art education.
