In light of the COVID-19 public health crisis, Oklahoma Contemporary has temporarily postponed the opening of our new home, including spring Studio School classes and workshops. Read more about the planned launch of Studio School, now scheduled for summer, here.

We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this ongoing situation, and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Courses in sculpture and fabrication are taught in both Oklahoma Contemporary’s main building and in The Studios. State-of-the-art facilities and equipment are available in the digital media lab, woodshop, metal shop, ceramic studios and flex spaces.

Early registration: Members at all levels receive early access to registration.

Discounts: Members at all levels will receive a 10 percent discount on Studio School classes and workshops for the named cardholder and teens in their household. If you are not a current member, join today.

Supplies: Oklahoma Contemporary provides durable artist equipment for student use during each session. Students are responsible for purchasing their own supplies for courses—a syllabus and material list is emailed upon registration. Some items, including clay and ceramic tools, are available for purchase on the first day of class.

Teen registration in adult courses: In addition to offering classes and workshops for teens, Studio School invites high school juniors and seniors to register for select adult courses. If you wish to register your teen in an adult class or workshop, please submit an application here.

For your reference, listed below are now-cancelled spring session classes. Stay tuned for the announcement of new summer courses!
