Oakland Fine Arts Summer School and Jaír Foundation, Inc. are working hand in hand to integrate sports and arts programs for students of all ages. Through athletics and the arts, overall growth of health, fitness, nutrition and academics is enhanced. Oakland Fine Arts Summer School (OFASS) program has been in existence since the summer of 1993. This program has been run in collaboration with Jaír Foundation, Inc. for the past few years. It is an intensive four-week program with a strong emphasis on the performing arts and complemented by the visual arts. It provides opportunities for beginners to advanced students to work in an exploratory mode, venture out and accept challenges, be focused, and be disciplined, while having fun at the same time.

Program participants are from an ethnically diverse population, made up primarily of students from Oakland Unified School District, with some from local private or parochial schools, as well as students from around the Bay Area. Students are grouped by grade level (K/1, 2/3, 4/5) and/or experience, and are assigned classes in several areas of the arts. During a 4.25 hour time period per day for 19 days, students rotate through assigned classes ranging from visual arts at one end of the spectrum to modeling at the other end.

Instructors for the program are talented California and bay area resident artists, former Professional Athletes and teachers that team to engage children in a memorable summer experience that culminates in a professionally staged performance. The OFASS program is a gem that bay area children are fortunate to have provided free of charge.
