The College of the Arts showcases the arts through its Office of Educational Outreach (OEO) initiative which connects creative students of all ages with Georgia State’s workshops and institutes to advance learning and appreciation for the arts. The program serves public school students and teachers, collegiate and graduate-level students, community members and professional artists through innovative programming and “hands-on” experiences.
Hear from Director Amy Reid, as she talks about OEO’s origins, annual program highlights including the upcoming summer schedule of workshops, and the benefits of learning alongside renowned guest artists and critically acclaimed artist-faculty at Georgia State.
