WELCOME

Since its founding in 1977 as a 501 (c) 3, Art Center East has inspired interest and participation in the arts across Eastern Oregon. Based on the Eastern Oregon University campus in La Grande, Art Center East provides arts learning opportunities in regional schools through its Artist-in-Residence programs and oversees the Community School for the Arts program, which hosts private music lessons for children and adults, the Community Symphonic Band, the Community African Drumming group, the Union County Children’s Choir, and the Grande Ronde Community Choir.

More recently, Art Center East has expanded its services through a merger with the Art Center located at 1006 Penn Avenue in La Grande.  The Art Center operates an on-site community-based arts and culture education program for children and adults.Art Center East’s efforts are supported in part by its members, and local and regional foundations. For more information about art classes and programs offered at the Art Center, please call 541-624-2800 or stop by at 1006 Penn Avenue in La Grande, Monday – Friday between 10am and 4pm.

OUR MISSION is to enrich our rural communities through inspiring interest and maximum participation in the arts through education, exhibits, and cultural experiences.
