DID YOU KNOW?

Students in Edmond Public Schools do not receive formal

art education classes until 5th grade?

In 2002, Edmond Fine Arts Institute (FAI) and Edmond Public Schools(EPS) began a creative partnership so 3rd and 4th-grade students could have weekly art education lessons all year. What started as a pilot-program in three elementary schools has grown to include every EPS elementary school!

FUN FACT: This school year FAI Instructors will teach 4,704 art lessons to 4,500 students.

As a 501c3 nonprofit, FAI relies on support from individuals, businesses, and foundations to fund the Art in Schools Program.

FAI RAISES $140,000 EACH YEAR SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS PROGRAM

Why is Art Education  Important?

Get to Know Us

Art education stimulates creativity, knowledge, self-discovery, communication, and problem-solving skills, which are crucial to a successful, well-rounded education. Currently, the Art in Schools Program focuses on 3rd and 4th-grade students, but with sustainable funding, we aim to provide ALL K–4th-grade students in Edmond with art education each week!
