Looking for Volunteers and Mentors!
Are you interested in leading or assisting technology-based art classes? Our programming includes classes for K-12 students teaching commercially-applicable skills for creative industries. Oakwood Arts is always looking for mentors and volunteers with experience in working with graphic design, web design, costume design, photography, animation, and film and video (editing and production).
Oakwood Arts is currently running our Spring 2019 programming. This spring we're offering a weekly intro to animation class at Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School and the continuation of our Story Hour program, among a few other events and workshops. We're also busy ramping up for our summer programming, which will include a digital photography program, a multimedia digital storytelling workshop and a field trip–based museum studies camp. Stay tuned!
We would love to have you on our team to help teach these classes and guide our students!
Read on to find out more about our upcoming programs and how you could lend your abilities.
Oakwood Arts' Mission is to make art and careers in creative industries accessible to all through community engagement, inspiring programming, and experiential education.
Our SUMMER 2019 Programming:
(with the Black History Museum, running from July 15th-19th, 2019)
We are excited to partner with the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Richmond this summer. Students will get to know the museum's collections and explore historic Jackson Ward while learning the fundamentals of digital photography. Registration details to come soon!
This summer we are planning to offer another session of our Digital Storytelling workshop to give area high school students an opportunity to work with creative professionals learning digital video, audio and editing tools and create their own multimedia self-portrait project.
