Sponsor Arts Education in Bethel School District

Bethel School District, Lane County’s third-largest district, is home to over 5,600 students including 2,700 Bethel elementary school students. More than half of students in the district are eligible for free and reduced lunch and there are few arts programs available in the school and community. Bethel parents, educators, and district officials recognize the value of the arts and seek to incorporate regular arts education to position their students for success.

Join us in bringing hands-on arts education to every K-5 Bethel student!

Our goal is to raise $27,000—that’s only $10 per student!

We are seeking support from individuals and businesses who recognize the importance of art in building vibrant schools, communities and futures.

Artist Residencies bring professional artists to schools to engage young people in meaningful arts experiences that align with academic learning objectives.  Artist Residencies are customized for each school but are at least two weeks in length with regular participation in the arts among the entire student body.

Together, we can provide high-quality arts education to nearly 3,000 Bethel students in 108 classrooms!
