Arts Central is Central Oregon’s only non-profit art organization, and is well known for their incredible art center, The Art Station, which reaches students of all ages, skill levels and economic means every year. Children and adults can explore their creative sides with age-appropriate art instruction in year-round classes and workshops. Small class sizes allow for personalized instruction from Art Central’s talented teaching artists and create communities where students can enjoy a positive and supportive environment.
Featuring enrichment and specific art skill-building, students can experience the fundamental principles of art and design, the building blocks for all art, and use them to create their own unique work. Recently Arts Central has enhanced its program by offering courses beyond enrichment designed to deepen art appreciation, develop artistic thinking and enhance basic art-making skills. These courses focus on idea development so that each student sees endless ways to express feelings, inventions, observations and unique ideas through artistic process, supporting the belief that art involves lifelong learning.
