Teaching that is embedded in the arts develops thinking skills such as analyzing, evaluating, and problem solving. The direct connections between study, hard work and high levels of achievement are clearly demonstrated through the arts. Oaklawn Visual and Performing Arts Magnet School is an exciting center of multidimensional learning that puts a premium on the development of student imagination, thinking, feeling and communicating.
At OVPA, the possibilities are endless: visual arts, graphic design, creative movement, instrumental music, vocal, drama, television production, photography, concerts, and performances. The Common Core Standards are integrated throughout the curriculum at OVPA creating a greater understanding and overall experience for all students.
Here at OVPA, we pride ourselves on a strong Fall Production encompassing all of our students throughout the building. Our spring recitals never disappoint and truly show off what wonderfully talented students and staff we have here at OVPA.
The arts motivate and engage children in learning.
