The Arts in Schools program is very cutting edge. Several teachers have participated in this program to help bring new and more creative ideas to the class room to help children become more engaged not only in Math and Science but how math and science and the arts are truly related.

increase exposure to increase donations to help have a bigger impact in the schools.

I have been to the classrooms and seen how the artists funded by AHCT have helped teach children to engage creatively with their environment. Children need more than just math and science. Among many, many other important things, AHCT brings professional visual and performing artists into public schools, providing opportunities children otherwise would not have. They have arranged projects that help wards of the state and troubled youth realize their creative potential, and begin to understand that they don't have to be a destructive force or take on the negative characteristics often attributed to them by parents and teachers.

Many years ago, I taught art classes to elementary and middle school children through artist in residence programs through the Art and Humanities Council of Tulsa. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to the arts as a young person, I wanted to pass that on to the young in my city with the help of AHCT. It was a development experience for me and I hope I was able to touch the life of just one young person in a positive way. Free after school and summer art programs funded by AHCT for children who might not get the opportunity is such a blessing to our community.

Teaching allowed me to learn about my own craft.

I would do more of what they are already doing. Great job.
