THE OAK GROVE ARTS & MUSIC PROGRAM
The Oak Grove Arts & Music Performing and Literary Arts Programs have proven to be a very powerful motivators and self esteem/self confidence builders for the population we serve. Many of our children have suffered from abuse, trauma, depression, and many other problems. Oak Grove is committed to helping these children overcome their problems so they can become productive, responsible adults. In the past few years our children have had the privilege of working with the Musician’s Workshop, The Temecula Arts Council, the GAP Grant and Dorland Arts. We have found that as our at-risk youth experience the power of the Arts, amazing things can happen including healing, greater confidence and self-esteem, freedom in self-expression and positively connecting with others. We are raising funds for the completion of our multi-purpose room/gymnasium scheduled to be operational in October 2012. The building will house an Art & Music room including space for music lessons, rehearsals and storage of our musical equipment. There will be room for performances in the multi-purpose gymnasium.The generosity of Windsong Trust helped fund the Art & Music room.
