A Fine Arts Learning Center
for Grants Pass

The Need for a Fine and Performing Arts Learning Center

Background: Clarion Theatre Co. is interested in partnering with community groups and schools to solve a two-fold problem:

1. A shortage of suitable venue space for family-friendly productions in Grants Pass

2. A shortage of well-trained young people with adequate skills in the performing arts: music, drama, dance, set construction, technical support.

Clarion is therefore offering their experience and community connections to explore the possibilities of building a fine arts program for students and a

performance venue with a midsize theatre in Grants Pass.

What would be the goals of the Fine Arts Learning Center program?

● To train students to use their gifts and talents by achieving mastery and excellence in the fine arts

● A desirable, state-of-the-art venue to be utilized by schools and community groups

● A bridge to the community for more collaborative-mentoring opportunities with Clarion Theatre Company and others

● Offering high-quality, upper-level training of students with the possibility of providing college credit
