The Oklahoma City Girls Art School is an after school visual arts program for at-risk elementary, middle school girls attending school in the Oklahoma City school district. The mission of the Oklahoma City Girls Art School is to empower underserved girls to become successful in life through learning about the arts, the artist and the arts community. Our goal is to provide high quality visual arts training, introduce the girls to successful artists and give the girls an opportunity to experience how the arts help build our community. The ultimate goal of the Oklahoma City Girls Art School is to inspire a love of the arts, an appreciation of creative discipline and process, enabling the girls to be confident, imaginative, tolerant, generous and cooperative, as well as becoming contributing participants in the global art community. Students are encouraged to continue with the program until they graduate from high school.
