This is a program at Crown Heights UMC in Oklahoma City where high school and college age musicians and artists teach the at-risk, underserved children attending Putnam Heights Elementary School.
They work to see teens sharing the joy of their gifts with little ones and become servant leaders of the future.
Above all, this academy is meant to be a stepping stone into children’s lives to introduce the love of God and the community of the church as a real possibility in their lives.
Because of a Petree Grant from the Foundation, this vision is being realized. 50-70 disadvantaged children are impacted by the Arts Academy each year.
