In a time when education is often reduced to detached, remote and packaged experiences, CraftSummer classes provide an exciting, experiential-based learning opportunity. CraftSummer is a chance to meet with others who have the same interests, but who have different approaches in specific techniques and forms of expression.

Opening Minds Through Art – OMA

OMA was founded by Dr. Elizabeth “Like” Lokon in 2007 and is grounded in person-centered care principles. It is headquartered at Scripps Gerontology Center, an Ohio Center of Excellence at Miami University. People with dementia (artists) are paired with volunteers (students, families, caregivers) who are trained to rely on imagination instead of memory and focus on remaining strengths instead of lost skills. OMA enables people with dementia to assume new roles as artists and teachers and leave a legacy of beautiful artwork. OMA has been widely replicated.

The Youth Writing Camp provides young writers with exciting, active, and cooperative experiences that will enhance and improve their writing skills while sparking their creativity. The week-long camp is facilitated by OWP trained classroom teachers and local authors.
