OAG’s Youth Council meets regularly to plan monthly In-Studio workshops, in-person or virtually, featuring emerging youth arts practitioners. 

These FREE workshops take place monthly on Friday evenings and art materials and snacks are provided.

Workshop activities are wide ranging and have included intros to crocheting, printmaking, and journaling. Participants have made everything from jewelry, comics, zines and latkes!

Open to youth aged 15 to 25.

The Gallery’s youth council meets monthly to discuss and organize programs that highlight and support the creative potential of the next generation of arts leaders.

Council members are between the ages of 15 and 25. They work closely with gallery staff, contributing ideas and sharing interests while gaining experience working in the arts.

Projects include planning workshops, talks and events, field trips and collaborations with local artists on public art installations.

Participation on the council requires a commitment of one to two evenings a month for one year.
