Welcome to Oakwood Arts Bridge!
Oakwood Arts Bridge is a volunteer group dedicated to supporting performing and visual arts in Oakwood Schools. We provide a broad overview of the current arts offerings and opportunities for our students K-12, as well as a link to the community for arts events beyond our school district. We also raise funds to support grant requests from our arts teachers and provide volunteer support where needed. We support the following areas of study at Oakwood Schools:
- Speech and Debate
- Theatre and Drama
- Visual Arts
- Creative Writing
- Media Production
Please contact us if you are an Oakwood community member and would like to become involved in the Oakwood Arts Bridge. To stay up to date with our activities, follow us on Facebook.
