IMG_1635Professional visual, fine, craft and performing artists work with students and teachers to create extended educational arts activities, teach new skills, develop creative thinking and offer career insights. Quality arts instruction provides young people with authentic learning experiences that engage minds, hearts, and bodies. One week of artist residency provides four learning sessions per day, over five days (20 hours). A typical artist residency is two weeks (40 hours).

Lane Arts Council provides arts integration for classroom curriculum based on Common Core and State Art Standards.
