Art In Education


Onion River Arts Council works to listen to and fill the needs of the community and schools when cosidering annual arts-in-education offerings. Currently, Onion River Arts Council offers a variety of educational opportunities to the central Vermont community.

The largest part of this focus is in community collaborations with other local non-profit organizations including the Washington County Youth Service Bureau, the Barre Housing Authority as well as Central Vermont Community Action Council’s Head Start program. These collaborations offer arts activities and arts education opportunities in after and out of school programming, in local low-income housing communities, and with families and children in early education programs.

In addition to our community partnerships ORAC regularly offers community workshops, master-classes, and other programming in conjunction with the Celebration Series and national, regional and international artists. If you are interested in adding your name to ORAC’s mailing list which updates individuals and organizations about upcoming arts opportunities, please send your name, e-mail address
