Special Events


October 12 and 19, 1–3 pm

Curious about different forms of art but reluctant to sign up for a whole class? The “Try Art” events are self- guided opportunities where you can experiment with different media and explore the OAC studios. Simple visual instructions and guidance are provided by the instructor.

The medium varies by date. Call the OAC to see which medium will be offered on each date, or just come with an open mind and a willingness to try something new! Workshops run from open house style. Stay the whole time or just drop in a “Try Art.”

For more details, please call or email the Arts Center. Pre-registration is encouraged. $5 fee per person.

In celebration of Artober, our month-long member drive, we will have a Halloween Party! Activities will be geared towards preschool-5th grade, all families are welcome. Dress in costume and come for the whole time or just stay a bit.

There'll be Halloween art activities, a Monster Dance Party, mystery Halloween boxes (can you guess what's inside?) - maybe you'll reach in and get one of our free art supply giveaways. Take a selfie with our Halloween character cut out or take home a Polaroid memento ($2 donation recommended).

We will serve chilled organic no sugar added fruit juice to be enjoyed at the Arts Center and will also have organic fruit snacks and organic unsweetened applesauce for trick or treaters to eat here or take home. Make us one of your many Halloween stops this year.
