Studio School Online

Bored? Lonely? Us, too. So we’re bringing people together – online, in real time – in a creative pilot program, offering hands-on learning and collaboration in 10-week classes and workshops. Unlike browsing YouTube tutorials or auditing an impersonal open course, Studio School’s small classes emphasize individualized instruction in a fun atmosphere:

Prost! Ceramics, beer and festivities unite in this three-part workshop for clay artists of all levels. Together with instructor Liv Egan, you will learn about traditional German beer stein design and create your own lidded vessels. During the last session, students will meet outside in person (social distancing and masks required) to assist in unpacking their works of art from the outdoor kiln. Students may then tour the new Oklahoma Contemporary facility and inaugurate their steins with a beverage from Café Contemporary.


Veterans Initiative

Oklahoma Contemporary will serve as a nexus for the creative community and identify ways to make meaningful connections between veterans and contemporary art, artists and creative practice. Ten percent of Oklahoma's adult population are veterans of the U.S. military. By engaging in studio practice, veterans will discover new ways to connect with each other and their community. The arts are proven to build resilience, strengthen coping skills and improve self-esteem and well-being.

Oklahoma Contemporary's program will employ teaching artists and university faculty to support veterans in the technical, intellectual and creative aspects of developing their studio practice. Building on the success of the Veterans Initiative in Ceramics, we will expand our ceramics offerings exclusively for veterans and also reserve spaces for veterans in all of our Studio School classes.

Applications for the Veterans Initiative will be accepted on a rolling basis.
