What We’re Up To




Hey teachers! Check out our new take on fieldtrips: we’re inviting students to visit the Arts Center without ever leaving their seats! Via Skype, we’re taking classes on a virtual tour of our exhibit gallery and then guiding them through a special art project. Have a classroom or other group who’d like some art but can’t make the trip to the Center? Give us a call to set up an Art Zoom session.



Have a group of kids, teens or adults who want to experiment with art and music making? Let us know and we’ll design a workshop or class series for you! We’ve got a phenomenal roster of teaching artists and musicians who can meet your needs, whether you’re looking for a one-time art experience or a weekly gathering. Come to us here at the Arts Center, or we’ll come to you! We work with groups at libraries, schools, prisons, assisted living facilities and more.




Providing opportunities for art expression in under-served areas. Art boxes are currently available for clients’ enjoyment at the Pendleton Warming Station and Day Station, Eastern Oregon Alcoholism Foundation and the Domestic Violence Shelter.




Would you like to see one of our many wonderful artists exhibited at your venue? Or perhaps host a special performance for your community? Give us a call and we would be happy to bring art and music to you!
