Helping Students Explore Visual Arts

In order to introduce children as well as adults to the visual arts, the creative process and the environment of a working artist, many studios are open mid-week – this year Oct. 3, 4, 5 – for scheduled tours. Many artists offer hands on experiences and demonstrations. This is an excellent opportunity for students of all ages to experience art, see how and where it is made, and meet and talk with working artists.

By partnering with Yamhill County public and private schools and the Chehalem Cultural Center, we provide a truly unique and visual art experience that serves as a catalyst to spark a child’s interest and exploration in the arts. This year, on Oct. 3 and 5, we are offering free educational tours and classes. All transportation costs will be reimbursed. These educations experiences are made possible by support from the Collins Foundation and other tour contributors.
