Oaklea is into ART
ArtCore Grant Awarded
Exciting News!  In addition to receiving the Studio to Schools grant, Oaklea will be one of five middle schools in Lane County to receive a shared $2.2 million of Federal government funding for the Arts. This is called the "ArtCore" grant.

ArtCore is an immersive studio-to-school arts integration project that will be implemented in five Lane County middle schools. In collaboration with Lane Arts Council, the University of Oregon, and participating districts, ArtCore will bring new, creative and collaborative opportunities to teachers and students. With a significant research component, ArtCore will help deepen our collective understanding about creativity, the arts, and teaching and learning at the middle school level.

The funding will be combined with the Studio to Schools grant money, and will encompass four to five years of art for Oaklea Middle School students!

We would like to thank Ross Anderson, from the Educational Policy Improvement Center, Liora Sponko, Executive Director of the Lane Arts Council, and the rest of the team at Lane Arts for their help in writing the proposal for the ArtCore grant and highlighting the features that will make Oaklea an excellent candidate to receive the funding.  Brian Young, Principal of Oaklea Middle School, reports that he is tremendously excited to see how the arts enrichment funding will strengthen student creativity, critical thinking, and engagement in classroom study.  Studio to Schools and ArtCore will combine to truly benefit all students at Oaklea.
