Community Ensembles

Access to the arts is more important than ever during these fast-changing times. ACE continues creating arts opportunities that bring new knowledge and joy into everyday life in an affordable way. Our Take & Make Arts Learning Kits make great gifts for others, or yourself! These artist-designed kits include options for children, teens, adults, and families. Enjoy exploring a variety of art mediums and have fun! 


ACE staff designed our Take & Make Arts Learning Kit program with the following goals in mind:

- Offer accessible art-making to community members of all ages 

- Provide quality arts instruction that fits into any schedule

- Support local and national artists alike 

- Decrease screentime fatigue; our art kits include written instructions rather than online instructions, making them perfect for a screentime break

- Increase time outdoors; take kits on trips, use them in parks, etc.


How to purchase kits:

- Select kit(s) below and go to checkout. At checkout, select local pick-up, local delivery (within La Grande city limits), or domestic shipping.

- New kits available each quarter! Stay up to date on kits with the ACE weekly e-newsletter. Subscribe here.   


We can’t wait to see where your arts exploration leads; share your projects on Instagram or Facebook with #artcentereast. 


Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers on our Kit Assembly Team!
