Drawing on a rich art history that includes the roots of American modernism, the OMAA educator travels to schools and community organizations to share objects from the museum’s permanent collection, educating students about the selected artist and inviting them to create artwork related to the lesson. Field trips to the OMAA are included in the program. Current partners include
- Alzheimer’s Association, Scarborough
- Art Certificate Program, Biddeford
- Governor Baxter School for the Deaf, Portland
- Maine Public Schools
- Waban Projects, Inc., Sanford

In season, the museum hosts its Totally Tuesday Talks weekly lecture series. Most talks begin at 6 p.m., with light refreshments served at 5 p.m. Please check the OMAA calendar for details. For Tuesday events, the museum remains open after 5 p.m. for gallery viewing.
In July and August, OMAA offers Stories by the Sea, a one-hour program for children ages 4-8 that includes a story reading and a hands-on art project. This weekly program is held outdoors and is cancelled in case of rain. Check the OMAA calendar for dates and times. The cost is $5 per child.
Also for families visiting the OMAA, look for our Artful Playdate tote bags when you arrive. The bags contain suggestions and art supplies for activities inside the museum.
