REGISTRATION OPENS AUGUST 12

OAC offers unique young artists experiences and instruction. Our progressive courses are designed to develop students’ creative thinking and problem-solving skills; as well as their artistic skill set. These after-school enrichment art programs offer each young artist a curatorial opportunity to display their artwork on the last day of class where family and friends are invited to attend. Not only does this give them the full artist experience - from conception to production and exhibition - but they have fun in the process! Each instructor will provide additional, specific information about these events during the course.
