OGS Virtual Classroom

As we work together to slow down the spread of Covid-19, by sheltering in place and social distancing, OGS has transitioned it's education program to a virtual creative space.


During times of crisis and grief, art is always a tremendous gift that can raise our spirits, give color to our feelings and allow us moments of peace and grace. During these uncertain times, we invite you to register for one of our educational opportunities as an honorary OGS Supporting Member. So please feel free to click on the membership level price at check-out to get your discount.
