Willamette Art Center: A Place to Learn and Grow in the Arts
The Willamette Art Center is an artists’ oasis tucked amidst the oaks of the Oregon State Fairgrounds. It is Salem’s only community art center for hands-on activities in art, with a primary focus of ceramics. The Willamette Art Center’s programming, services, and activities revolve around three main areas: art education and promotion, art opportunity and the betterment of the community through art. These services and activities are accomplished by offering exciting classes, workshops, and camps to children and adults, studio workspace for the independent artist, the Oaks Gallery, the Artisan’s Village at the Oregon State Fair, Family Clay Sundays, and the Empty Bowls sale to benefit Marion Polk Food Share.
