In partnership with Julia Reynolds, art educator at Caldera High School and Bend La Pine Schools Arts (Educator) Liaison, Scalehouse is presenting a new pilot program, Scalehouse  Art Lab Arts Education Program for both art educators and students in the Bend La Pine School District.

By blending traditional techniques with new approaches, this program aims to ignite creativity, foster critical thinking, and cultivate a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
