With the support of a grant from US Bank, OCCA has been bringing artists into the Lincoln County school district through the 21st Century After School Program, serving housing insecure and at-risk youth.

During the current school year, OCCA has been leading 4-week sessions. During the winter session, students are focusing on book and paper arts at Sam Case Elementary in Newport. Attendance has been averaging 30 students per each early release on Wednesday afternoons.
