Youth Programs

At Jordan Schnitzer Family Art Adventures, we have been crafting exciting and innovative youth art camps and family workshops since 1998. We find the most creative and nurturing artists and staff to guide youth through an exploration of art mediums, taking creative risks and problem solving. Whether a young artist is sculpting, painting, stitching, building, felting, or printing, we give them the tools, inspiration and freedom to discover their passion.

Jordan Schnitzer Family Art Adventures is one of Portland’s most respected arts programs and generously sponsored in part by Jordan Schnitzer and the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation. We provide the tools, skills, and respect necessary to build a young artists' creative experience and help families create together.
