ACE is continuing to grow, and we're excited to offer more arts experiences in 2023. We're increasing our Youth Arts Learning Fund, Artists in Rural Schools program (for K-12 students across Eastern Oregon), Community Music Program (private and group lessons), arts classes at ACE and other locations, youth STEAM experiences, and our gallery exhibits!

Please consider giving to ACE before the calendar year ends. Generosity comes in many forms. We appreciate and honor all donations we receive - whether large or small - and we believe community-oriented giving is a sum greater than its parts. We're proud to offer arts opportunities in our community and support the good work already in progress.

We have a goal of raising $10,000.00 by the end of 2022 to put towards the Youth Arts Learning Fund. The fund provides children and teens up to age 18 with free or reduced-cost arts experiences such as ACE classes, take-home arts learning kits, music lessons, and more.
