This wonderful program started in 1994 for the Onslow County School children. Since then it has evolved into a much larger program. For Onslow County public schools each grade is assigned one performance so that each year the student will experience a different form of artistic expression. But we are now opening all the performances to all base schools, private schools, home schoolers, churches, day cares, and individuals. Now all our children have the opportunity to experience and benefit from professional performing groups.

Arts in the Schools

Did you Know?
Onslow County School System is the 16th largest system in North Carolina
approximately 23,500 students enrolled
Thirty- five (35) schools, including one Pre-Kindergarten Development Center and one Alternative Center
Since 1981, the Council for the Arts has administered the Arts in the School Program. Our purpose is to provide students in Onslow County an opportunity to enjoy professional artists and performers. We believe exposure to quality arts is a benefit to all students. While we cannot reach every student, we strive each year to distribute the programs as fairly as possible. This program is a partnership between the Council for the Arts and the Onslow County School System. This collaboration allows us to develop supportive arts programming in the schools for the purpose of enriching the regular curriculum. In 2009-2010 school year 5,000 students participated in the program. Arts in the Schools is funded by the Onslow County Board of Commissioners and coordinated by the Council for the Arts.
During the last 31 years, the Council has administered over $464,000.00 for this project and since its inception, over 248,100 students have benefited from this innovative program.
"Thank you for creating the opportunity for Anita Burroughs-Price to be able to play for Silverdale Leaders in Training Elementary School today. Our students and staff thoroughly enjoyed her music, her music teaching, and her performance. One of our first graders came up to her after the show and told her, "We really want you to come play for us again." The little girl didn't realize it but she spoke for our entire school. Connie, Janae, thank you for the time and effort that you put in to making the arts come alive in the Onslow County Public Schools and here at Silverdale.
