Summer Art Program (CSAP). Using the same
curriculum guidelines as AAS classes, CSAP
includes two daily classes, one 2D

includes one piece of artwork from each child.

Children’s art education is always highlighted at Firehouse-
hosted events. Each occasion includes free visual arts
activities for children such as painting a section of the Art
Wall, sketching from live models, using thumbprints as a
means of drawing, or participating in creating foil sculptures
and painting “Creative Cubes.”
The Chocolate Festival is open to the public with free art activities (painting and sculpting) for attendees. At the FAC's only fundraiser, attendees may purchase tickets to try 10 or 15 samples of chocolate-themed food supplied by local restaurants and caterers who donate their samples in support of the FAC and its art education programs.
In 2013-2014, a total of 2,294 Norman public school

and provided art supplies to Lakeview Elementary (243
students per year). At Jackson Elementary, Firehouse
faculty provided daily art instruction, ensuring that every
student attended an art class once every two weeks.
