Presented at Veneta Elementary School by Lane Arts Council, our All About Art summer camp happens each year for three weeks in the summer (9:00am – 12:00pm each day). This hands-on camp offers safe, fun experiences in the visual and performing arts for youth entering into the 1st through 8th grades. The camp is led by Alex Lanham and Merideth Ferrell, both professional artists with extensive experience in youth programming.
