Join us this summer for All About Art Summer Camp!

Lane Arts Council is excited to bring our All About Art Summer Camp to the Fern Ridge area. This fun and engaging day camp offers youth entering into the 1st through 8th grades a week of creative, safe, and hands-on experiences.  This summer’s camp will be led by three local teaching artists who will inspire the campers through a variety of visual arts.
