Education, Art, Self Expression, Leadership (EASEL)
The arts are important to mental and social growth. Cutbacks in the arts have compromised the survival of school art programs everywhere. Through EASEL, the Foundation partners with public school art teachers to provide support for budding artists, under their supervision.
Adventures in Reaching and Teaching (ART)
The Foundation partners with community organizations that believe in the power of art to reach and teach. It is through the facilitation of effective collaborations, that we enable participants to engage in projects that positively impact our community on a local, national, and global level.
Celebrating Our Differences
For a tapestry of multi-disciplinary artists, allegory serves as a powerful tool, demonstrating the value of diversity, awareness, tolerance, respect and encouragement to Celebrating Our Differences.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math)
The Foundation partners with school systems and community based organizations to engage students in a powerful combination of topics, techniques and experiences. When it comes to art, this includes language arts, social studies, physical arts, fine arts, and music. "Where science ends, art begins."
Keepers of the Dream
Oscar greatly admired the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King and painted many portraits and murals of him. His favorite Dr. King quote was, “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” Each January and April, the OTF sponsors activities that keep “The Dream” alive.
"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other"
