Healing Arts & Outreach

OKCMOA outreach programs provide education and hands-on art making experiences for people of all ages throughout the community. Reaching beyond the Museum’s walls, the Museum is committed to actively collaborating with community partners to provide hands-on enrichment through the visual arts.


Please join us for Making Memories at OKCMOA, a program for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Held on the second Tuesday of each month from 10:30 am-12 pm, the Museum is able to offer free access to its galleries and studios. Gallery time includes a discussion centered on one work of art, and studio time includes one hour of refreshments, conversation, and instruction.

Making Memories is promoted through the Alzheimer’s Association of Oklahoma and adult day care facilities throughout the Oklahoma City metro area. The program is also open to individuals who live on their own or with a caregiver.

Upcoming Programs:

  • Tuesday, February 11, 10:30 am-12 pm
  • Tuesday, March 10, 10:30 am-12 pm
  • Tuesday, April 14, 10:30 am-12 pm
  • Tuesday, May 12, 10:30 am-12 pm

While admission is free, participants must RSVP in advance. Please reserve your space in the program by calling (405) 278-8221 or emailing learn@okcmoa.com.
