Art Tech Grant: Expanding Access to Well-Rounded Courses Demonstration Grants Program

Art Tech Grant Overview

Art Tech is a federally funded, five-year (October 1, 2020-September 30, 2025) grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Education to provide fine arts courses in schools with limited or no arts access. The goal is to increase the number of schools served every year to address the lack of fine arts education in districts across the state. 

PK-8 Program

Curriculum aligned to the Oklahoma Fine Arts Standards was developed in dance, drama/theatre, music, and visual arts. Lessons are delivered weekly in-person at schools by teaching artists hired by the OSDE. Student supplies are provided. 

High School Program

Students may enroll in one semester long Canvas course in drama or visual art. Courses are organized into weekly modules (aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Fine Arts) and are facilitated by classroom teachers at the school site. Student supplies are provided.

Districts Served

This video featuring Oak Grove Public Schools shows how Oklahoma school districts are benefiting from Art Tech. 

We will soon be hiring teaching artists and recruiting schools for the 2024-2025 school year.
