Studio to School
Working together to deepen and expand music and arts education.
The Sisters Studio to School Project infuses arts into the learning experiences for all students grade K-8, and helps develop a culture of music and art enrichment and integration in the Sisters School District.
Since 2003, Sisters Folk Festival, Inc. has helped shape Sisters School District students’ artistic selves through the festival’s community outreach arm, the Americana Project. Last year, they stepped up their commitment with funds from an Oregon Community Foundation grant to further the arts in schools.
The five-year grant is part of OCF’s statewide arts education initiative, Studio to School. Through the program, the OCF seeks to support collaborative projects between schools and community arts organizations to design and deliver sustainable arts education opportunities that have the potential for replication.
