Community Ensembles

During these changing times, access to the arts is more important than ever. ACE strives to continue creating offerings that ensure our community can easily and affordably bring new knowledge and joy into everyday life. Our newest option is Take & Make Art Kits that are great for travel, outdoor activities, or gifts. These artist-designed Take & Make Art Kits include kits oriented toward adults and youth. If you are excited to learn about a new medium or process, try one out. 

ACE staff discussed many goals while creating this new Take & Make Art Kit program. Here are just a few that we held close to our hearts:

  • Bring art-making to the community in a newly accessible way.
  • Provide quality instruction that allows for more schedule flexibility during the busy summer months.
  • Support local artists and national artists alike.
  • Decrease screentime fatigue; these offerings include written instructions rather than online instructions making them perfect when you need screentime break.
  • Get outside; take your kit camping or on your next road trip or in your back yard.

How it works

  • Select a kit below and checkout; at checkout, you may select local pick-up, local delivery (within La Grande City limits), or domestic shipping. 
  • Youth Kits list value, and you may donate the suggested amount or select the kit for free. 
  • Find new kits listed below each month! Keep up to date with the ACE newsletter - sign up here.
