The Oxford Arts Alliance will have art camps at the Octoraro Art Association in 2021 to safely accommodate summer camps during the COVID-19 pandemic. All summer camps are for ages 7+ and will be held from July 12th-Aug 6th. They are half day art camps this year with a morning session from 9 am-12 pm and an afternoon session 1 pm-4 pm. Your camper will participate in a week or two of 3 hour half day camps, whether it is plein air painting or muddy clay-making! You can find more information for our plein air art camps here and our clay camps here. We're looking forward to our first year with the ability to take our campers outside!

We've renamed our Emerge Scholarship Fund to The Larry F. Thompson Scholarship Fund, presented by the West Grove-Avondale Rotary and the Oxford Arts Alliance. The Larry F. Thompson Scholarship Fund provides individual need-based scholarships to music students at the Oxford Arts Alliance Academy of Music. Larry F. Thompson (1942-2020) was a beloved member of the West Grove-Avondale Rotary and a music student of the Oxford Arts Alliance. In Memorium, we honor Larry's life and the song he always had in his heart through passing the torch and passion for music onto the next generation. This scholarship ensures that no student in Oxford, PA, will be denied access to a musical education due to their inability to pay or afford an instrument.​ Donate Today!

Don't just take our word for it!

"My wish would be that every town should have places that open the mind to new experiences, views, thoughts and host community events. In Oxford we are very lucky to have the Oxford Arts Alliance which has one large vision including art classes, art exhibitions, music classes, music events, movies for discussion, social events, education, and just plain good fellowship. So much under one small roof, I hope everyone in the area can find something to enjoy in what they offer to the community and in turn join the Arts Alliance and help support them in their efforts."

Wendy Williams, Member since 2008



"This organization has been nothing but an asset to my family and myself. Not only do I, as a Graphic Designer and Photographer, work closely with them and have a family membership, I also have had my kids participate in classes that the Arts Alliance offers. My son has taken Guitar lessons with Hakaan, and my daughter has taken painting classes, and attended the art camp for kids in the summers. The shows are fantastic, and pricing is within budget as compared to other art sponsored shows. The Arts Alliance offers a lot of EVERYTHING, for EVERYONE. If you haven't visited the gallery, it is open to the public, and VERY friendly. Go visit, and do yourself and the community a great service... Join today!"

Jen Zduniak, Member since 2012




"The OxAA has been a godsend to my family. Through their lessons, my children have a higher knowledge of music via the exceptional teachers of the music academy but also a deeper appreciation for the arts as a whole. The summer camps have helped nurture and develop the soul of artistry in both of my children, which I am eternally grateful. The teachers of the music academy are without a doubt the definition of dedication and love of music. My children would not be in better hands, than in the Oxford Arts Alliance."  

Jeannine Lenge, Member since 2017
