Youth Art Activities 

KIDS CAN #MUSEUMFROMHOME, TOO!

Whether it's an OMA-themed coloring booklet, a preview of our upcoming exhibition with Oliver Jeffers, or our interactive "Book and a Look" videos with Ms. Molly, we've got hours of engaging content to keep your children occupied while they play and study from home. Looking to venture out in the safest way possible this summer? Check out Orlando Museum of Art's Summer Art Camp offerings at omart.me/summercamp » 

Here are the extra safety precautions we're taking in 2020:

Class sizes reduced to a maximum 10 students each.

Curbside drop-off and pick-up so that parents do not have to enter the building.

Students issued personal art supplies kits to use throughout the week, thus avoiding regular sharing of basic art tools.

Enhanced deep cleaning regimen across museum grounds.

Learning spaces will alternate between the clean comfort of our education studios, 19,000 square feet of gallery space, and the Loch Haven Park sunshine.

For questions, reach out to us here or at education@omart.org

For information on class availability or for general questions, you may call (407) 896-4231, ext. 262, or email education@omart.org.

In the meantime, enjoy these activities from home:
