Public Art is smART - How It Works
We want to provide you with the materials your students need for doing the activities included in our resources! You can order them from us and we will deliver them to you.
Following each activity you will find a form to request materials for that project. This form includes the activity name, a list of the supplies so you can indicate which of those you need, number of students, to whom and where they should be delivered, by what date, and contact information for any questions.
Complete the form, send it to Cher at the Norman Arts Council, and when she receives your request, she will send confirmation to you. We must have at least 1 weeks’ notice before the materials are needed. Please allow for holidays when planning for delivery of materials.
You will receive a color 22 x 28” poster of the subject work of public art when you order materials for projects in our resources.
Each of our resources includes a Related Books section. We have sets of each title at the Norman Arts Council that are available for you to borrow for a 1 month period of time. Call Cher at the NAC (405.360.1162) to check availability of the books and schedule when you would like to check them out. Availability is limited, so please plan accordingly.
When we deliver your book order, we ask that you are prepared to schedule an appointment in 1 month for us to pick-up the books.
We need your input! It is vital for the effectiveness of Public Art is SmART that we can properly assess its impact on teachers and students. In order to make certain that it is always beneficial for you and to enable us to qualify and quantify our results; we ask that you complete the program survey that you will find here.
In that survey, you will find a place for you to tell us about any positive, meaningful stories related to the impact of our program on you, your students, or perhaps a member of a student’s family. Please take the time to relate those stories to us.
We want to be able to continue to use Norman’s public art to help you and your students in the best possible manner.
