Welcome to Tulsa Girls Art School!
Empowering underserved girls through visual arts training.
At Tulsa Girls Art School (TGAS), our goal is to provide specialized art training to talented and motivated elementary school-aged girls living in the inner city of Tulsa. TGAS is different from other local charitable organizations providing professional level art instruction by local art teachers and artists. We provide a small class environment to give students plenty of individual instruction and encouragement. TGAS focuses on increasing student understanding and appreciation of art and the life of an artist. We encourage children to see themselves as artists and life-long participants in the arts.
