Accepting artists’ applications through July 3 for 2015–16 Arts Education Program including Artists in Schools (AiS), VanGo Outreach Program and onsite Art Station classes for kids and adults.
The Artist in Schools (AiS) program is dedicated to bringing artist residencies to schools in Deschutes, Crook, Jefferson, and other outlying counties. To date, AiS residencies have provided quality arts education to more than 2,000 local school children. VanGo is a community outreach program that gives children in rural towns with limited access to professional-level arts education the ability to build skills in various art disciplines. VanGo partners with local community organizations including Partners in Care and Mary’s House.
AiS residencies and VanGo outreach programs are both designed to place trained, knowledgeable, practicing artists into school and community settings where they can share the benefits of the creative process. Art Station is Central Oregon’s premier non-profit visual arts community learning center. Located in Bend’s Old Mill District, Art Station is a dedicated facility that is open year-round and offers a full session of quality art education programming in ceramics, fused-glass and multi-media for ages two through adult.
