Examples of previous collaborations include, Leadership Evanston, in which art workshops and discussions were focused on creative problem solving skills. As well as, YWCA Week without Violence, a series of workshops and art exhibition of work created by women survivors of domestic violence. We have even partnered with 21st Century to provide after-school art workshops for elementary aged children.

Our goal is to make these programs and workshops as beneficial as possible, so we will work with you to tackle your hopes and goals for this time. A collaborative effort between our staff, teachers, and you will ensure that this will be a valuable endeavor for your group.

SEL Art Curriculum

Want to bring our curriculum to your schools but unsure where to start?

To begin, you will need the collaboration and cooperation of your:

  • Principal
  • Parents
  • School Counselors
  • Arts Liaison
  • Art Educators

OSP has experience in targeting and communicating with the right person within those schools, or we can give you the tools and language to use in order to address it.

There is a strong need for social & emotional education and a need to teach healthy behaviors. SEL takes place within the context of safe, participatory school, family, and community environments that support children’s development and provide opportunities and recognition for successfully applying these competencies. Our goal is to engage your whole community in this process, bringing everyone on board so that they all know the positive power of teaching these competencies.

If you need help knowing who and how to bring up this curriculum, get in contact with:
