February 5: Fiber Art Love

It’s Fiber Art February at OMA! To celebrate, we’ll be exploring artists like Nick Cave, Bisa Butler, and Kyle Meyer, who are known for their colorful textile creations. In the studio, learn basic sewing techniques to make your own heart-shaped pillow. Use a variety of threads, fabrics, and other embellishments to design unique Valentine’s Day cards, as well as a special Valentine’s Day crown!


March 5: Soulful Prints

Join us for some soul searching! Reflect on your passions, hobbies, family, and friends, in order to design soulful relief and monotype prints. Explore the galleries and be inspired by artists such as Kerry James Marshall, who created a 50-foot long woodcut print. Brush-up on color mixing, and learn how to use printmaking tools like brayers, barens, gel plates, inks, and more. Dress for a mess and be ready to soul search through printmaking!



April 30: Dive Deep into Art!

In the ocean, one drop of water can make a difference. In the studio, one drop of creativity can too! Discover how your imagination and creativity can be boundless by exploring artwork in the exhibition A Boundless Drop to a Boundless Ocean. In the studio, dive deep into art by sketching things above or below the sea. Bring your sketches to life by creating a three-dimensional wonder on canvas using self-hardening clays, papers, and paints.


May 14: Extraordinary Clay Vessels

Build a unique, one-of-a-kind vessel inspired by the Art of the Ancient Americas. Explore ancient vessels created by cultures, such as the Colima, Maya, and Moche. Using white and colored clays, students will build a vessel that is at least 12-inches tall, and once taken home will be admired for years to come! Clay vessels will be kiln fired and ready for pickup on Tuesday, May 25.
