These classes are currently full, but you may add your child to the wait list and you will be notified if a spot opens!

We have 4 CASA options during the school year. Each semester long class meets once per week for two hours and is for kids in grades 3 to 6. Students will get to enjoy making projects in the Hot Shop with glass artists and the Clay Studio with our full-time potter. In the Kids Studio they will learn about drawing, painting and thinking creatively. 

The 12-week sessions cost $185 per semester with a limited number of scholarships available. Please email Amoreena with any questions or scholarship inquiries. Students who attend OBES will be picked up in a city van by a staff member at school at 2:55 pm. We limit the number of participants per class so that they can get excellent instruction, the best supplies and lots of attention. 

A link for registration will be posted and will go live on ActiveNet one month prior to class starting.

The 4 class options are:

  • Tuesday,  10:00 am-12:00 pm OR 3:00 pm-5:00 pm
  • Wednesday, 10:00 am-12:00 pm OR 3:00-5:00 pm

Connect to ActiveNet and register your child for the class of your choice!
