Studio to School is a multi-year grant initiative supporting 18 collaborative projects between schools and community arts organizations to design and deliver sustainable arts education opportunities that have the potential for replication. Activities can occur both during the school day and in out-of-school time. Through this project, The Oregon Community Foundation aims to increase arts opportunities for underserved youth in grades K-8 and to support communities in strengthening their networks and capacity to offer year-round arts education.
Studio to School Learning Community
Along with grant support for direct programming costs, all grantees participate in meetings of a learning community to explore collaborative strategies for supporting high-quality, innovative arts education opportunities for elementary and middle school-aged youth. Grantees also participate in program evaluation and are eligible for technical assistance related to data collection and other evaluation requirements.
