OCA  City of San Jose, Office of Cultural Affairs

Champions of Arts Education Awards

As of June 2011, the Office of Cultural Affairs is no longer providing the Arts Education programs and services listed and described in this section. While we firmly believe in the importance of arts education, the City's operating budget deficit resulted in the elimination of many important programs and services. Many of our San Jose arts organizations that have participated in OCA Arts Education programs over the years will continue to offer arts exposure, engagement and educational opportunities for San Jose youth. Please check back at this site in early August for additional information and links to arts education resources. If you have any questions, please email Arlene Biala or call (408) 793.4332.
