ArtSpark Eugene is a collaborative initiative led by the Rotary Club of Eugene, Lane Arts Council, the Eugene Education Foundation, and Eugene School District 4J to provide every elementary student in the 4J district with high-quality arts education led by local artists.
This year, ArtSpark will provide students with access to virtual livestream arts experiences through Lane Arts Council. Your donation will invigorate distance-learning with hands-on lessons that get students up and moving through the performing arts, teach core subjects through the visual arts, and support student creativity, mental health and well-being. These essential programs are only possible through the generous support of donors like you!
Lane Arts Council's arts education programs have reached almost 7,000 elementary students and provided over 1,600 hours of arts education annually. This is a 60% increase in the amount of arts education that was provided before ArtSpark was implemented!
Your donation will help us reach more students and provide more arts experiences - just when creativity and hands-on learning is needed most.
On December 4th, 2020, The Rotary Club of Eugene and Lane Arts Council will host the fourth annual ArtSpark Virtual Gala and Auction, where you can bid to win staycations, fine art, wine, dining, and more while supporting arts education for young people in our community. Attendance is free and open to all, with all proceeds directly funding arts experiences for 4J students in the coming year.
Registration opens on November 1st. Click here to register, make a donation, and purchase your raffle tickets today!
