A well-planned art show is very important in OMA. After everyone’s hard work for 10-15 weeks, you want to celebrate everyone’s success and let the world know about it. Start planning the date and venue when you at the beginning of your 10-15 week session. Let all your volunteers know of the art show date on the first day of training and require art show attendance. Invite families, staff members, management, the general public and the press well in advance. Celebrate the artists’ achievement and the friendships they develop with their partners in this art show.
Below is an example of OMA photo montage created for the art show. Create your own montage using the current semester’s volunteers, artists, and example artwork. You may want to add quotes too in this video.
