Two great youth art exhibits are on display at the Clackamas County Public Services Building right now! Even while you can’t see them in person, view them online.
Safe Routes to School Exhibit – Lobby Gallery
Clackamas County Safe Routes to School (SRTS) aims to make communities safer, healthier, and more fun by combining route improvements, traffic safety promotion, and educational activities to encourage students to walk or roll. The program goal is to build awareness of the benefits of being physically active and utilizing active transportation while promoting safety among all road users. In the spring of 2020 Clackamas County SRTS held the first annual countywide poster art contest celebrating walking, riding, and rolling to school. K-8 students were asked to draw the benefits of walking or biking to school.
This exhibit highlights pieces of artwork from Ms. Wright’s 4th grade class at Hallinan Elementary School in the Lake Oswego School District. These adorable contributions of Ms. Wright’s class will be on display until December 1, 2020.

Youth Arts for Change Zentangle Exhibit – Plaza Gallery
Clackamas County Arts Alliance (CCAA)’s Youth Arts for Change program was proud to work closely with the Clackamas County Juvenile Department (CCJD) to provide their youth with one-on-one virtual art classes. In light of changing youth interests and the impact COVID-19 has had on gatherings, CCAA evolved, adapted, and brought online, personal art experiences to each student free of charge with all materials provided.
Students produced some amazing work, felt listened to, supported, and were able to find a way to express themselves during these challenging times.
These are only a few of the amazing works from this first pilot program, but we know with the success and interest youth shared, there will be many more to come.
The amazing student Zentangles will be on display until December 15, 2020.
