ArtQuest is an interactive STEAM-focused program designed for students to experience art in OMA’s galleries through a scientific lens, transforming the museum into a learning laboratory that aligns with classroom science and literacy standards.
With funding from individual donors and foundations, OMA developed a digital version of LTA for this school year, including a five-part video series, shot on location at the museum and the library, and produced by our local media outlet KOCT. This allowed OMA educators to take the museum to the students.
Will you help us do the same with ArtQuest? There are five months left in the 2020-2021 school year, and your donation will make a difference in the lives of 1,300 Oceanside fifth-graders.

In spite of the challenges 2020 has presented, OMA has proven resilient and had a meaningful impact by engaging local youth, offering inspiration during isolation, and demonstrating unparalleled growth in essential community connections.
Your investment now will support the creative capital needed to persevere as we continue to provide meaningful impact with community engagement, crucial education initiatives, and innovative programming in 2021.
