Thank You For Your Support Of The Drawliday Festival!

OMAH celebrated the holidays on December 6th, 2019 with "Drawliday Festival", a fundraiser that will help us with upgrades to the Dorothy Macdonald Creative Studio to improve on our delivery of programmes for children and youth.
Before the Drawliday Festival occured, we already had over 500 students visit the museum for our education programs alone. Because of this, we wanted to improve on the students experiences by upgrading lighting with track lights using LED bulbs, a metal art basin, a dedicated laptop, custom storage, easels, and a new smartboard.
Drawliday Festival guests were treated to live music by the Will Davis Trio featuring Hugh Coleman, as well as good spirits and holiday cheer.
Thank you so much to everyone that purchased a ticket to the Drawliday festival. Because of your support, OMAH was able to raise almost $6,000 for these upgrades to our studio. Your support helped OMAH reach that target and provide amazing educational experiences to all ages.
Thank you to our gold level sponsor Mayo & Associates, as well as our supporters Mariposa Market, Home Hardware, Doug Hamilton, and Jill Dunlop, M.P.P.
To all of the artists, over 100 of you, thank you for creating one of a kind contributions to OMAH’s Drawliday Festival. We would not have been able to put on the event without your help!
Our next steps will be to start our studio upgrades! Stay tuned as we update lighting and freshen up the space with a new coat of paint. We are very excited to provide our program patrons with the best experience possible.
Did you miss the Drawliday Festival? You can still support OMAH with a purchase of one of our remailing Drawliday Squares. We received 114 one of a kind works of art for the event and not all of our generous supporters ended up picking work. As a special holiday offer, from now until Christmas, we will be offering the remaining works of art at just $45 each, no tax! Each purchase will be added to our fundraising total. If you know anyone who would like to support the studio refurbishment, stop by the OMAH Shop for a square! There's so much more we could do to support our children's programmes.
There's no place like OMAH for the Drawlidays!
