Students marvel at Oakland's new School for the Arts

OAKLAND

FORGET the sound-proof recording studio, the black box theater, and the large classroom windows overlooking the city's Uptown area.

When 16-year-old Kwame Grant saw the inside of his new school for the first time Tuesday, he was captivated by the hallways, the front door and the walls.

"That was my first reaction. I had to touch the door," he said.

For nearly five years, the Oakland School for the Arts made do in the parking lot of the city's ice rink, with a large tent and portable classrooms. In 2007, when a nearby housing development needed more space, the school at San Pablo and 18th Street actually shifted into the intersection.
