Group photo of the Collaborate class at Oxy Arts The Oxy Arts Collaborate Workshop brings together a teaching artist, Oxy students, and youth from Highland Park in creative collaboration. 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 will be fully remote. Classes are held over Zoom, and all materials will be provided to students free of charge. We have a workshop for 6-8th grade students on Wednesdays, and a workshop for 4+5th grade students on Thursdays. The class meets from March 3/4 - April 22/23, 2021, 4:30 - 6 pm. You can register at these links:
