Our SPRING 2019 Programming:


Intro to Animation

(with Anna Julia Cooper, beginning March 12th, 2019)

We are excited to be able to continue our partnership with Anna Julia Cooper School this spring and begin an Intro to Animation class with students during their in-school activity block. Mitchell Craft who has been teaching our Animation Class at Salvation Army will be leading the group through engaging activities with a focus on stop motion animation utilizing a variety of techniques.


Story Hour Program

Oakwood Arts is hosting a weekly after-school Story Hour, with a book reading and related art activity. We'll have readers from creative industries and visiting artists leading the activities with two of our partner organizations.
