Edmond Public Schools and Fine Arts Institute of Edmond Offer Art Program to Elementary Schools

Enhancing creativity is one way of helping students improve themselves both mentally and emotionally. When children explore different kinds of art, not only are they enjoying the colors and the value of their output, but they are also learning excellent skills and creative thinking.

Many public elementary schools in Edmond do not have formal art classes until the fifth grade. To provide art classes to lower elementary years, the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond is partnering with Edmond Public Schools to launch a program called Art in Schools. It is an additional class offered to third and fourth graders in eight elementary schools, where kids will learn more about art from a professional artist.

Art in Schools is a creative program that helps promote art awareness among students and helps them to develop their creative skills. According to Executive Director Shannon Price of the Fine Arts Institute of Edmond, children who participate in the arts are more motivated and confident and have higher scores on their exams.

Many private organizations have also offered their support through donations. Monetary donations are being used to buy art supplies and compensate elementary school art teachers.
