For the sixth consecutive year, the year-end thesis exhibition by students enrolled in Advanced Study in Drawing and Painting at Hudson Valley Community College will travel to Art Omi’s Education Pavilions for display on Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2 only.

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.
