Arts Council and Juvenile Affairs Partner for Kids
OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs (OJA) received a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council to provide kids in their care with hands-on opportunity to learn the fundamentals of graffiti art from Oklahoma City-based hip-hop instructor, Angel Little. Already, kids in Tecumseh and Manitou have participated in class discussions and learned various techniques for sharing ideas, expressing emotions and communicating a vision through graffiti art.
"It's important to encourage our kids to do bigger and better things than we've ever imagined," said Little. "But, that encouragement doesn't just come in the form of words. We show that we care and are truly invested when we spend time with them and offer the benefit of our experiences and knowledge so they can build on that."
