Shapeshifters (Week 1, Week 3 and Week 5)
Everything is not what it seems in OAG’s art lab! Spend a memorable week full of transformations, illusions, and a bit of magic as we combine arts, science, and fun. Join us in creating cool tools, breaking things down to their bits and bytes, and uncovering the nuts and bolts behind artworks. Grab your lab coat and prep your easel!

What’s on the Other Side? (Week 2, Week 4, and Week 6)
Is the grass really green on the other side? What month has the best puddles? Do cosmic beings like ice cream? These questions and more will be answered in this enigmatic week of exploring your world. Hunt for treasure, discover secret passageways, cross the center of the earth, explore matter, map out our adventures, and put the “art” in chart as we get to the other side of what you know.
