Learning Through Art (LTA),
IRVAC's most cherished program is committed to bringing art and cultural experiences to the youth of the Illinois River Valley of this Southern Oregon community. LTA began in the summer of 2003
with the Biscuit Fire Photography project.
LTA has grown to include projects serving a large number of local young people throughout the year. LTA works closely with teachers and their curricula to bring hands-on experiences in art, culture, history, music, and the environment.
LTA projects incorporate a local and global community perspective for the youth of the valley. Young people receive training in the arts from professionals and other community members in a positive and supportive environment. Projects are displayed at local schools and the library.
Through this program, young residents of the Illinois Valley gain a deeper understanding of other cultures and find venues to express their newfound perspective of the world and themselves.
