December Newsletter

From all of us at AOMA we would like to wish you a very Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Our studio has experienced a lot of growth and change over this last year and we would like to thank you all for being a part of it. We also want to thank our dedicated staff and instructors.

Some of AOMA’s 2018 highlights:

 The start of our monthly AOMA Paint Night was a big success with full nights and a lot of fun in November & October.

 The growth of our offerings to over 20 diverse art courses.

 Our continued growth of special art events such as the University Info Night & Student Art exhibition.

We’re excited for 2019 and to see our studio & staff grow and flourish and continue to contribute to our Kerrisdale community and beyond!

Annual Student Art Exhibition

AOMA had a great turnout for our annual student art exhibition.

Each AOMA student had one special piece of artwork on display. It was inspiring to see all the progress made in 2018.
