Thank you to our partners, sponsors, artists, volunteers and campers for being part of this year’s All About Arts Summer Camp. Join us again next summer!

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.

The 2018 All About Art Summer Camp was all about Global Explorations as students experienced music and dance from different cultures, incorporated famous landmarks into their painting, and learned to sculpt animals from around the world.
