OSDE Introduces Oklahoma Art Tech Grants for PK-5 Schools
The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) has announced a new grant program aimed at restoring and sustaining arts education in Oklahoma schools and expanding access to well-rounded courses. Funding available through OSDE's new Oklahoma Art Tech Grant will provide fine arts education in PK-5 schools that currently have limited or no arts programs. Applications are now being accepted from schools interested in bringing an Art Tech Visual Arts, Dance, Drama/Theatre, or Music program. The program is structured to provide high-quality standards-based fine arts courses, monthly arts experiences led by teaching artists, implementation support, and related art supplies.
Schools can apply for the grant here. Deadline to apply is May 14.
The Oklahoma Art Tech Grant was made possible through OSDE's partnership with the Oklahoma Arts Council, University of Central Oklahoma, the Chickasaw Nation, the Osage Nation, and the University of Oklahoma's Center for Educational Development and Research.
