Open Studio


1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Open Studio is the MOA’s art-making program for all ages! Inspired by an artist or artwork from a current exhibition, this art-making experience encourages you to ponder key questions about an exhibition’s theme, and then create your own unique response. Registration is not required. Each month features different artworks, exhibitions, and art activities. Some past activities can be done at home using common household materials. Check out our archive of these activities here.
