Oklahoma Alliance for Arts Education at a Glance
We, the Oklahoma Alliance for Arts Education believe that the study of the arts is essential to the basic education of all students.
When students experience the creative arts process on a regular basis, they learn new skills and thought processes resulting in overarching learning, applied to other disciplined areas of their education. Learning in the arts encourages the development of creative abilities, collaborative teamwork and cognitive learning skills that directly and positively affect reading, math and problem solving development.
