OUR MISSION

Orcutt Children's Arts Foundation Mission is to provide all children in the Orcutt Union School District the opportunities to experience and participate in the visual and performing arts by bringing together community resources.

To our beloved OCAF community and supporters,

By now all our lives have been significantly impacted in one way or another due to the COVID-19 virus. The challenges facing our world, our community, our families and OCAF reveal themselves daily. With tremendous uncertainty comes enormous pain and anxiety from the lingering economic fallout, health concerns, and the duration of sheltering in place.

Since 2002, OCAF has worked diligently to bring visual arts, music, drama, theater, choir, and dance into the classrooms of Orcutt Union School District. OCAF has funded the following Visual and Performing Arts programs from 2018-2020.

  • Visual art supplies for Arts Attack curricula in our K-8 schools

  • Band Uniforms

  • Orff instruments for the OUSD elementary music program

  • Junior High Band Instruments

  • High School Band Instruments

  • Sound System & Wireless Mic’s for OUSD drama/theatre program

  • Teacher Grants for art related special projects

  • Art related field trips/Art related teacher conferences

  • Dance Training and Instruction for Teachers

  • (2) Scholarships awarded each year to a graduating senior pursuing an education in the arts 

  • High School AP Arts Program

  • Ballet Folkloric Dance Instruction at Olga Reed School

  • Choir and Holiday Music Performances

  • Summer Band Camp

OCAF has had to cancel our annual CHALK FESTIVAL as we are facing a grave threat to our economic stability. Currently we cannot fulfill the majority of these programs for the 2020/2021 school year and some VAPA programs may need to be eliminated.

We ask that you take a stand for visual and performing arts education and ensure that, even amid difficult financial decisions, a continued commitment to arts education remains a priority. If you can please donate to OCAF. Every donation helps, now more than ever.  

And finally, we would like to express our deep gratitude to each of you, your generosity, kindness and devotion has allowed OCAF to fulfill our mission for the past 18 years. Support OCAF by visiting our donation page or via mail at 500 Dyer Street, Orcutt, CA 93455. 

Wishing you good health, Orcutt Children’s Arts Foundation
