Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in the Sculpture & Architecture Park and Newmark Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.

These final presentations led by critic Cathleen McGuigan give the 10 participants of the Art Omi: Architecture Residency an opportunity to pin-up and show their projects at the conclusion of the two-week residency. The public is invited to a critic-led conversation, and see the early stages of the thinking and design process of making architecture.
The reviews are arranged into two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon with a lunch break in between, where the public can grab a bite at the café.

Following all the juried presentations, everyone is invited to enjoy a reception with conversation, snacks and refreshments, and get to know the 2020 Architecture Residents. Art Omi welcomes the public to its events and grounds free of charge.
