Oklahoma Arts Council awarded grant for art education

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._The Oklahoma Arts Council has been awarded a $140,000 grant from the Oklahoma State Board of Education to make arts programs possible at alternative education sites across the state.

Funds will be used by the council to award Arts in Alternative Education grants of up to $5,000 to eligible schools that apply. Up to 30 sites could benefit from the program annually.

“Arts education can appeal to the specific needs of these students and provide them with unique skills and knowledge that will help prepare them for college, career, and beyond,” said Oklahoma Arts Council Education Director Jennifer Barron.

A similar program previously funded through the state's Department of Education was eliminated after the 2009-2010 school year due to budget cuts.
