ARTSPARK SUPPORTS ARTS EDUCATION IN 4J ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS!
ArtSpark 2020 Virtual Gala and Auction raised almost $50,000 to provide arts education to 4J students! With additional funding from the 4J school district, every 4J elementary school has access to TWO arts residencies during the 2021-22 school year.
WHAT IS ARTSPARK?
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.
Lane Arts Council’s arts education programs have reached almost 7,000 elementary students and provided over 1,600 hours of professional arts education annually. This is a 60% increase in the amount of arts education that was provided before ArtSpark was implemented! Lane Arts Council continued virtual arts education during school closures through ArtStream, creating dozens of live online arts lessons for students throughout Lane County.

AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF EDUCATION
Hands-on arts learning in visual and performing arts develops creative thinking and self-confidence. As we return to in-person instruction, the arts will offer students an avenue for self-expression and healing. Lane Arts Council’s teaching artists will engage minds, hearts and bodies through painting, sculpting, puppetry, collage making, dancing, music and so much more.
4J elementary schools will have access to performing arts residencies as well as visual arts residencies. Explore Lane Arts Council’s Directory of Teaching Artists (this link has been updated to http://lanearts.org/residency-descriptions/) to read more about specific teaching artists and their specialty areas for residency programs.
Talk with your school administer about booking an arts residency! Teaching Artists can be booked online or by calling Lane Arts Council’s office, 541-485-2278. Questions regarding Lane Arts Council’s arts residencies can be directed to Ben Minnis, Lane Arts Council’s Arts Education Program Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-485-2278.
