ArtSpark funding ensures that elementary school students in Lane County have access to the arts. We work with each school to fill gaps and support their specific arts learning needs. Lane Arts Council provides dozens of visual, performing, and literary arts programs in classrooms led by professional Teaching Artists. Just a few of these programs include mural painting, illustration, songwriting, natural dyes, acting and storytelling, glass fusion, fiddle music, and salsa dancing, among many others.
Having arts in school not only exercises student creativity but provides a wide range of benefits, from building cohesion and school community to helping students learn how to express complex ideas. Arts experiences support mental health and social-emotional well-being, deepen engagement, and help students grow confidence in who they are and their unique voice.
Support of ArtSpark creates arts opportunities for thousands of young people. Your donation today will ensure that elementary students have access to arts education in the 2023-24 school year and beyond!
ArtSpark began as an initiative of Lane Arts Council, founded in partnership with the Rotary Club of Eugene in 2016, to ensure every Eugene elementary student had arts opportunities as part of their in-school learning. We now hope to expand the ArtSpark fundraising outreach to all Lane County school districts.
