Winter Art Camp

Studio Art Sessions for Students Grades 1-8

December 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, 2020 and January 4, 2021

Put on your imagination hat and let your mind soar! Go on an adventure through the OMA galleries this winter vacation and explore textiles, paintings, sculptures, and more! Let your imagination run wild as you design two- and three-dimensional works of art. Two sessions are available: one for students in grades 1-4 and another for students in grades 5-8.

Here are a few of this year's added safety precautions:

  • Reduced class sizes, 10 students each (down from the 20 per class we normally serve each year).
  • 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 of touchable surfaces by OMA staff in addition to a contracted cleaning service.
  • 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.
     

Times: Full-day classes are from 9am-4pm. Bring a lunch, a drink and a towel for a picnic. Please wear closed-toe shoes and dress for mess!
Cost: Daily Rate: $45 visitors; $40.50 for Members
Additional $10 firing fee for 1-4 grade on December 29 and January 4. Additional $10 firing fee for 5-8 grade on December 28, and an additional $12 materials fee for 5-8 grade on January 4.
