Kids are always welcome at OASIS! We've dedicated part of our mezzanine to the aspiring creatives of tomorrow. Climb the mosaic stairs and look for our Jack in the Beanstalk mural. There you'll find a classroom with art materials ready for your young ones to draw their own masterpiece. Or find the treasures in our mural with a scavenger hunt.
Saturday classes are held the second Saturday of the month. Let the kids explore their creativity while you shop at the Harrisonburg Farmers Market!
Summer activities are held on Tuesdays, July through August.

Kids Summer Activities:
Beginning in 2015, OASIS began offering a summer art program for children in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham county area. The activities are free to families and for two years the program was funded by a grant from the Arts’ Council of the Valley.
The age ranges have been from age 5-12+ and classes are relatively small with approximately 10 per class. The teachers are OASIS members and friends of OASIS.
Between eight and ten different activities have been offered each summer and included such activities as painting with beeswax, jewelry making, scrapbooking, quilling, hand-building with clay, photography, journal making, yoga, dance and so much more. In most cases the child leaves the class with the item they created.
