Free Summer Art Events for Young People in Beaverton
This summer, Grey Raven Gallery will welcome local children to our Beaverton art gallery for a series of free art events. Taking place on the first Saturday of every month during summer, kids can experience a range of fun, engaging events at our new creative space in Beaverton. Attendees should expect a mix of education and entertainment, complete with hands-on arts and crafts lessons. And with art playing such a vital role in childhood development, these events are not to be missed.
Grey Raven Gallery Promotes Art Education for Young People
As a new addition to the artistic community in Beaverton, Grey Raven Gallery is committed to providing a welcoming space for visitors of all ages. And with our close ties to Oregon’s own free art education platform, Golden Road Arts, art events for children are especially close to our hearts.
Grey Raven Gallery is a division of Golden Road Arts, and was developed in part to fund the continued creation of free art lessons for local kids. Profits from the gallery contribute to the expansion of Golden Road Arts’ already substantial art curriculum, where all video content is available to parents and teachers at no cost.
The announcement of the free summer art events offers the chance for kids to learn from established Northwest artists. The details of these exciting events are set to be released as we approach summer, so you might like to set aside the first Saturday of each month for a visit to Grey Raven Gallery.
Why Access to Free Art Matters for Young People
Art has been shown to have many positive benefits for children, both in their earlier years and as they continue to grow. Here are just some of the advantages of providing free, accessible art events and lessons to young people.
- Art events can promote creativity and self-expression.
- Art aids in the development of fine motor skills.
- Art can improve emotional well-being and reduce stress.
- Art events encourage children to develop social skills and work in a group.
- Art education enhances learning in science, math, history and other subjects.
- Art increases cultural awareness and builds an understanding of diversity.
- Art can help improve problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
As you can see, the benefits of attending art events and taking part in lessons will extend far beyond the immediate gratification of the artistic process. Join us this summer and let your child ignite a love for art that will contribute in many ways throughout their life.
