“At the Art Studio,” is a workshop series for children and young adults offered by the Art Department at SUNY Oswego. The series is gearing up to begin its first fall program.

Offering 4 sections divided by grade level (Early Elementary, Late Elementary, Middle School, and High School). Programming runs for six consecutive Saturdays from October 8th to November 12th, 10am-Noon. Registration is now open. Income based scholarships are available. For information, contact the Art Department at 312-2111 or email us at You can also visit us online at

Future workshops will also be offered this winter, spring, and summer.

This program came about as a result of adults in the community asking for more opportunity for their children. These workshops fill that need based on the premise that artistic expression empowers practitioners to take action, do things, build things, to make mistakes, explore, and search for answers.

This past Fall 30 students participated in the inaugural program. Broken into 3 groups by age, these young artists engaged in series of projects that culminated in an exhibition on the last day of the session. As part of the program, students explored various materials and methods used in the making of visual artworks. They also investigated the use of themes and interpreted their projects with an emphasis on the individuality of expression.

The workshops offer students the opportunity to engage in projects while acquiring skills to practice “creative expression”. With programs running in the fall, winter, spring, and summer, the At the Art Studio workshop series is meant to compliment existing opportunities within the community. The program seeks to give students the chance to explore their interests through offerings that cover a wide range of materials and methods over the course of multiple sessions and seasons.

Ultimately, the primary goal of the series is to provide young artists with the skills and resources necessary to focus on their creative process, connect with their communities, and develop their own vision. Open to any children or young adults in the area. There is a modest tuition fee of $59 for the workshops with scholarships available for those with financial need.
