The Oxbow School
Grant Awarded: $30,000
The only visual arts program of its kind in the U.S., the Oxbow School in the Napa Valley is a one-semester co-ed boarding school for high school juniors and seniors that integrates academics and the visual arts in five media. Painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography and digital media are taught in an interdisciplinary approach with English, American History and Environmental Science. Through rigorous studio art practice grounded in creative and intellectual inquiry, the program extends each student’s critical thinking abilities.
Now in its 15th year, the Oxbow School faces an ongoing challenge to attract students from diverse racial, socioeconomic and geographic backgrounds and secure funds to offer financial aid to those in need. Oxbow is partnering with Craig Frazier to create a video and brochure that communicates the vision, purpose and uniqueness of the school.
