Fostering Art was developed to bring awareness to the foster care issue and those affected by it in Oklahoma. We hope to create an opportunity for a child in foster care to express themselves by sharing their creative masterpiece while inspiring others to get involved.
Art-related activities can be incredibly important to children; studies show involvement in the arts boosts self-esteem, leads to higher test scores in the classroom, instills pride, and increases their sense of belonging; all of which are incredibly important for children in foster care.
Fostering Art 2015 will open in the spring of next year. Check back for information on volunteer activities, how to join our planning committee, or how to get a foster child involved. Feel free to contact us anytime for more information.
