During the first six weeks of the semester, Oxy students learn core arts education and public engagement pedagogy. In the following 6 weeks, Oxy students collaboratively lead an after school art workshop for local middle school youth, culminating in a final public presentation.

The next session of the Collaborate After School Art class runs from October 14 - November 18th, 4:30 - 6 pm. If you are interested in registering your child, please email, or fill out this application.

If you are an Oxy student interested in the Collaborate course, please visit our For Oxy Students page (coming soon).

The Oxy Arts Collaborate program is made possible by the generous support of the Kathryn Caine Wanlass Charitable Foundation.
