Hi

I have an app that works with SQL databases using System.Data.SqlClient and with
Access databases using System.Data.OleDb

Is it possible to work with MySQL using either of these?

On windows system you can define ODBC datasource against MySQL and access shoult work the same way as with any other database.
Related ODBC Drivers for Windows are available on MySQL site.

So the answer to your question is YES IS POSSIBLE.
