Ashland Gallery Association/Ashland High School Visual Arts Alliance

Ashland Gallery Association receives grant award from Jackson County Cultural Coalition!

The Ashland Gallery Association was recently awarded $950 from the Jackson County Cultural Coalition, funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust. These funds will be used for the purchase of art materials to be used by AHS students while working with artist volunteers in the classroom and for summer art workshops.

The AGA/AHS Visual Arts Alliance is a coordinated effort of AGA artist volunteers, AGA staff, and the Ashland High School principal and art teachers. The purpose of the AGA/AHS Visual Arts Alliance is to draw from the abundant resources of Jackson County artists to enhance the educational experiences of Ashland High School visual arts students and give more students an opportunity to exhibit their work to the public.

With the increasing class sizes at Ashland High School, and particularly the Fine Arts classes, students will benefit from practicing artist presentations, more adult interaction and available artist supplies, not currently funded in the AHS budget. Materials needed include canvases and framing supplies, so that work can be presented to the public in a professional manner.

The “visiting artists” will share their knowledge and talents in a variety of ways:

  • Guest Artist Presentations / Lectures

  • Artist Demonstrations / Mini Lessons / Hands-on Projects

  • Facilitators (adopt a class 1 day per week)

  • Student Mentor (outside of classroom)

Student work will be presented to the community during Ashland Gallery Association’s Annual Student Art Exhibit taking place in local member galleries for the month of March.
