Register here for Camp Omi in a Box Week 6: Nature Made!
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.

WEEK 6: Nature Made
This week is all about the natural environment and its materials! Paint cyanotype shadows, build a sculptural reed basket, grow flowers out of socks, and make a performance video involving feet, fields, and flower seeds. Campers visit Primitive Hut by Caroline O’Donnell + Martin Miller. Includes sessions at Art Omi from 9 am to noon on Monday, August 10 and Friday, August 14. Camp Omi in a Box boxes are picked up at noon on Monday, August 10.

Artgarten Campers (ages 3 - 5) make leaf prints with watercolor paints, build a cholla wood sculpture, create mini mosaic with ceramic tiles, and read along to The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss. Plus a choice of in-person sessions at Art Omi, or interactive Google Meet sessions on Monday and Friday. Artgarten boxes must be picked up between 10 am and 2 pm on Friday, August 7 by children participating in the Google Meet sessions, or at the conclusion of the Monday in-person session on Monday, August 10.

What ages can participate?
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. Children also participate in optional in-person sessions from 9 am to noon on Mondays and Fridays, or interactive Google Meet sessions where Campers learn and share! (Children must be 4 or 5 years old to opt for the in-person session.)

What's in the Box?
Each 18” x 12" x 3” cardboard carrying case contains each and every material, tool, and product a camper needs to complete four art projects. Just like at Camp Omi, projects originate from our four studios - 2D Studio, 3D Studio, Performance Art, and Field Studies (Science + Nature in Art) - and are dreamed up by our amazing teaching artists. Activity prompts encourage visits to the sculpture park and themes focus on contemporary art, artists, and ideas. Boxes also contain instructional guides and links to fun video tutorials led by your favorite Camp Omi teachers!

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!
