Learning

Creativity is a critical component in helping young people learn and think and yet arts education is often squeezed by tight budgets. This series spotlights programs that are filling that gap. How are they working? How are they sustainable? How are they adapting to a diverse population? What can we learn from them and how can they be replicated?

This series is supported in part by a generous grant from the Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.
