What We Do
COA coordinates a wide variety of programs that support the mission of giving all EG students access to the arts. Students are given a chance to experience everything from theater, dance and music, to science, history, culture, and storytelling. Programs range from performances to hands on classes that help enrich a student's education and also their every day life.
Supported by a volunteer board, the COA Director researches, and plans carefully curated, diverse and age-appropriate artistic programs for each school within the district. The Director handles all negotiations with the teaching artists for the best possible block-booking rates, secures contracts and payment, and coordinates the artists’ scheduling and performance/presentation needs at each school.
