Who We Are
The OH Art School was founded in 2009 in Northbrook, IL to offer quality children’s art programs. We’re now located in the Zhou B Art Center in Bridgeport, Chicago, and continue to maintain our mission of providing invaluable visual art opportunities to youth.
We focus on children’s art education and offer opportunities to open students’ horizons through programs. From weekly small group lessons to portfolio development, OH Art enriches and challenges the students by introducing various cultural elements via visual projects.
In our weekly small group Visual Language Program, children can learn how to express themselves in a creative way while receiving individualized and committed attention - 6 students max per teacher. Students explore and learn through both individual and collaborative projects using various materials. All the materials needed are provided by the class, including a 18” x 24” sketchbook. Year-round visual language programs epitomize with an annual student art exhibition in December
Why Join Us?
Restrained by traditional educational curriculums, children have less and less opportunities for creative learning. Art education is vital for the development of young children. Art education benefits young children to develop hands-on skills by working with tools and materials. The process of art making also strengthens students’ cognitive development in understanding and problem-solving. Our program is one where children can have fun while simultaneously expanding their cultural perspective through our curriculum.
Visual Language Program
Students will broaden their visual art skills using various art materials while learning conceptual and cultural vocabulary. Students will receive individualized attention and complete painting, drawing, and sculpture projects. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
