Lane Arts Council offers a range of arts education programming and professional development for educators both in-school and in the community.

Artist Residencies

Professional 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).

Performance Assemblies

Performing artists and ensembles from a variety of cultures and artistic disciplines provide lively entertainment, enrichment, and arts education. Performance Assemblies are 35-45 minutes in length and often include an interactive discussion period.

Product of Eugene Arts Apprenticeships

A partnership between Lane Arts Council and the University of Oregon Department of Product Design, the Product of Eugene program offers Lane County middle and high school students apprenticeship opportunities focused on graphic, digital, and physical design. Students pair with an instructor or alumni of the UO Department of Product Design, utilizing the technology available at the 942 Olive building in Downtown Eugene. Students work alongside their mentor to understand the profession of product design, explore specific ways to approach design, and begin creating innovative products of their own.

Summer Camp

Presented at Veneta Elementary School in partnership with the Lane Arts Council, this hands-on summer camp offers safe, fun experiences in the arts for youth entering into the 1st through 6th grades. The camp is led by Alex Lanham and Merideth Ferrell, both professional artists with extensive experience in youth programming.
