Summer Arts Program

In cooperation with the Sheridan School District, we will hold our 18th summer arts program in Sheridan. It is open to students aged 9-16 years old from Yamhill/Polk Counties. Preference will be given to returning students and new students from Amity, Sheridan, Willamina, and Grande Ronde who register before June 1.

The summer arts program consists of 8 days of 2 ½ hour morning and afternoon classes for 2 weeks. The first week will be Tuesday-Friday, June 20th-23rd and the second week will be Monday-Thursday, June 26th-29th. On the last Friday, June 30th there are no classes but rather an evening performance and exhibition starting at 5:30pm.

All classes will be held at Sheridan High School in Sheridan, OR. Bussing will be provided from Willamina and Amity to Sheridan.  Courses are taught by working artists and educators. Classes are limited to 10 students to maximize learning. Classes with low enrollment may be canceled.

This program is funded through grants, tuition, and private donations from local individuals and businesses. We welcome your support.
