Education

Who We Are

The OH Art School was founded in 2009 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 carefully designed lessons and exercises. Instead of focusing solely on techniques, OH Art strives to enable students to actively use art as a language to connect with and express themselves. From weekly small group lessons to portfolio development, OH Art Foundation teaches enriching lessons beyond visual art techniques and theory. We weave cultural elements into our lessons to expand students’ thinking and to encourage emotional growth.

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. We celebrate our year-round visual language program 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.

OH Art Student Exhibition

We host an annual exhibition at the end of the calendar year to showcase students’ work in the gallery space and to come together as a community to celebrate. We will host our 3rd Annual OH Art Student Exhibition on December 20th, 2019 with at Zhou B Art Center. The exhibition will be open to the public and is a great opportunity for the students to celebrate and showcase their accomplishments! Attendees will be able to take photos with “Art Santa” and win prizes. Refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome. Pictures below were from our 2018 celebration.
