At the new, state-of-the-art Oklahoma Contemporary, visitors explore art and creativity through exhibitions, performances and educational programs for all ages. This multidisciplinary contemporary arts organization is an inclusive space with most exhibitions and programs offered for free.

Along with exhibitions and the hands-on Learning Gallery, kids and families can:

  • Attend weeklong school-break camps, including full spring, summer and fall camp itineraries that provide fun and challenging studio experiences for ages 5-12. Experienced art educators lead classes in painting, drawing, sculpture and ceramics plus performance, costume design, robotics and animation.
  • Visit free Second Saturday programs offered from 1-4 p.m., designed for the entire family and include hands-on art making, performances and gallery adventures.

Our family of five loves learning together at Second Saturdays! Not only are the programs free, the crafts and hands-on activities also captivate the interest of all three of my kids, and the educators are so intentional in engaging families in creative and meaningful ways. Erin P.

Our 8-year-old daughter enthusiastically attended camps most of last summer. The camp variety kept her engaged all summer long. Will definitely be coming back next year! Dan O.
