Today more than ever education in the arts (music, dance, theatre, and visual arts) is essential for our students. Not only are they a study of our culture and its heritage, but they also help in improving learning in academic subjects. Just like those academic subjects, the arts simply can't be learned through occasional exposure. The study of the arts in a non-traditional classroom setting allows our students to bolster their self-esteem, fine motor skills, and emotional balance while promoting a focus on and the development of essential 21st-century skills such as peer-to-peer communication, critical thinking, collaboration, team-building, and creativity.
At OCA, we offer a variety of fine arts opportunities for our students, including but not limited to:
- Visual Arts
- Digital Literacy
