FIRST TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH
Ages 2-4

Learn about Art Omi through the eyes of your little artist! Gather with other families of our growing Art Omi community for a morning of play, exploration, and art making as we learn about ourselves and the world around us. Using artworks by renowned contemporary artists in the gallery and sculptures in the park as inspiration, toddlers and their caregivers will investigate color, shape, form and more through multi-sensory experiences. This indoor/outdoor program will include a Circle Meeting, Art Adventure, Making, Storytime, Movement, and Independent Play Time.

This program is free and open to the public. No need to pre-register. Playgroup meets on October 2, November 6, December 18 (no Playgroup on December 4), January 7, February 4, March 3, April 7, and May 5.

Virtual Drawing Group

Apr 23 – Dec 31
5 – 6 PM

On Thursday evenings, Art Omi hosts Open Figure Drawing for Adults, where a group of artists gathers in the Newmark Gallery to sketch, draw, and render from a live model. While current circumstances prevents us from gathering in person, the urge to forge community through artistic practice has in some ways grown stronger than ever.

Now, we are inviting everyone in Art Omi's extended community to draw along at home! You are also invited to share and connect with the group via a weekly Zoom Thursdays from 5 - 6 pm EST. Please note that registration is capped, and so we encourage you to reserve your spot in advance.

You can also participate by tagging us on your completed drawings on Instagram or Facebook! Use #artomi and #educationomi to share your work. All styles and media welcome — show us your creative best!

Camp Omi in a Box (with In-Person Sessions!)

Jul 6 – Aug 21

Camp Omi in a Box is a weekly subscription to a series of make-at-home art projects, online tutorials, and interactive online gatherings that capture the mission and spirit of Art Omi’s popular Camp Omi and Artgarten programs. Anchored by a weekly box of specialty art materials, tools, and products Camp Omi in a Box includes activity prompts and access to exclusive online tutorials by Camp Omi Teaching Artists. Children may participate in a single week, or the whole seven-week program.

Camp Omi in a Box is designed for kids ages 6-10, and includes socially distanced in person sessions every Monday and Friday from 9 am - noon. Camp Omi in a Box: Artgarten provides projects for kids ages 3-5 with pick-ups on the Friday before the Monday session. Projects are supplemented with Google Meet sessions, where Campers learn and share! Younger children in both programs will need parent assistance and/or supervision. While some projects are designed to be more independent than others, we like to think of the program as fun and engaging for the whole family!
