Unleashing Creativity: Grant-Powered Artistry

Congratulations to Wewoka Middle School and High School for being awarded an Art Tech grant for this school year! The grant provides art supplies and a visiting artist that will work weekly with students. We are so excited about this project!

Meet our Teaching Artist! Virginia Sitzes will be on-site twice a week to facilitate art lessons for our 5th-12th graders.
