Let’s talk about teens. If you’ve been looking for after-school classes for your 6th-12th grader, you know they are few and far between. There are a lot of sports activities, but not many art opportunities. That’s why we offer three different classes for your preteen/teen: Independent Studio, Beginning Drawing and Adventures in Color. The middle and teen years are a time of tremendous growth, but they also come with struggles. Who am I now? Am I good enough? How do I manage all these stresses of growing up? Art education can help with those struggles, especially in the self-confidence and self-care areas. I encourage you to look through these images of our last year of teen programming and check out what we have to offer your artist. More can be found at https://otlartstudio.square.site/ Classes resume next week.
No Open Studio this Saturday, but the rest of September is looking fine! Mark your calendars for the 30th for a special pop-up from The Butterfly Whisperers to learn about monarch butterflies! Register at https://otlartstudio.square.site/
“We went to a concert in Connecticut and I said on the way back we should go to Philadelphia, Samuel said, oh we should go see that statue with the word! I had to think for a minute but I figured it out; was so amazed he remembered that from class and happy!” I get stories like this all the time, often many months after the lesson. Registration is open with room in both sessions of Artist of the Week and Homeschool Creators. Check it out at https://otlartstudio.square.site/
Open Studio Saturdays: Sharpie Tie Dye Totes! Just in time for back to school! Come make a canvas tote with Ms Megan, 11-4. Register at https://otlartstudio.square.site/ or walk in!
We like to save the best, most fun camp for last. It’s often a new one, with all new projects. It gives us a creative push to end the summer strong. This year it was Food Truck Camp. We went in with so many projects and then the campers had even more ideas. Free treats for visiting puppies? ✔️Sushi? ✔️Boba tea? 🤔It was a dynamic and fluid camp and I’m so proud of our staff who rose to the occasion. (Yes, boba tea. Here’s how. And let’s make it slime!) We emphasized marketing so look for some really tight branding from Taco Heaven, The Rainbow Cafe on Wheels and Tim’s Cool Foods, where patrons receive a pair of shades with every purchase.
Our Fiber Arts Campers weree so engrossed in weaving, crocheting and sewing we had to drop our tie dying project from the curriculum! Never fear. It’s this Saturday’s Open Studio featured project! See the last pic and join us Saturday 12-4 for Sharpie tie dye totes! Just in time for back-to-school! Register at https://otlartstudio.square.site/

DreamHouse Design Camp: It was our 6th year and our third dollhouse design.

Check the pics for a Christmas room, playground, swing, yard with pool and mower, and Ms Katie’s clever way to be sure everybody had the right piece as we were assembling our houses.
