Program Overview

Saturday Art Club is an arts and cultural enrichment program for youth to express themselves through hands-on activities, collaborate on projects with peers and educators, view and discuss exhibitions, learn about plants in the garden, and work with a local chef to help prepare their own lunch. Youth rotate through activities and disciplines so that they have the opportunity to create art of all kinds throughout the year.

Created to serve North Omaha, priority is given to youth living in or attending school in the 68110, 68111, 68112, and 68104 zip codes. Any remaining spots in the program are open to youth in Greater Omaha who qualify for free or reduced lunch or who are from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Program enrollment is on a rolling basis with a cap of 24 youth in each session to maintain a 1:8 educator to student ratio and allow space for relationship and community building. The Union is pleased to offer Saturday Art Club at no cost for participation. Transportation is not provided at this time.
