Explore and expand your child’s love of art and science this summer! We provide process-focused art experiences where students explore the use of techniques, tools, and materials with guidance and inspiration. The topics may be similar but the lessons and creations will be different each year! If your child had a blast last year they will continue that passion this summer!
Day and week camps are geared for 5 - 12 year olds. In this mixed age setting we inspire and guide each other to greatness. Toddler and Preschooler (18 months - 4 1/2 years old) workshops are offered as well! All Session Pricing includes supplies unless specified. OTLAS uses real artist grade materials so your child is getting a REAL Artistic Experience!
Summer 2019 coming soon! Check out below all the fun we had last year!
