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!
Camps and Open studio sessions 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 will be offered in the last two weeks in August. (not posted yet)
All Session Pricing includes supplies unless specified. OTLAS uses real artist grade materials, so your child is getting a REAL Artistic Experience!
Registration is Open! New registration format and new offerings!
