The Orcas Center is hosting a month-long exhibit of A*OK student art from April 15 through the month of May 2022 featuring works from every K-5th grade student, including select middle and high school artwork. 

Art for Orcas Kids (A*OK) is a program of the Orcas Island Education Foundation. The program brings teaching artists to Students (K-12) at the Orcas Island School District (OISD). Our teachers inspire students and bring visual arts to life through age-appropriate projects. We take pride in bringing art expression from a variety of cultures, historical perspectives and orientations and we seize the opportunity to expand students’ knowledge of unique life experiences, social justice and current issues.

Art on display will include Georgia O’Keefe Poppy project, Snowy Red Bird with mixed media, Jungle with Lion Henri Rousseau lesson, Tigers – Chinese new year/luck symbol, Gee’s Bend quilts collage project, How to draw a Penguin project, Dia de Los Muertos skulls, Sunflowers, Paper Bag Cats in 3-D, Clay owls and many more…

Thanks to our generous donors, A*OK is able to provide 20 weeks of teaching artists and art lessons to elementary classes, four quarters of art Exploratory classes to the middle school and a weekly year long drop-in high school art club at the Orcas Island School District.

We hope to see you at the opening!
