Since 1958, The Arc of Benton County has created programs that are designed to provide lasting benefits beyond laughter and smiles.
Recreational Guild Programs
Our highly qualified staff and volunteers provide expert instruction in the areas of visual expression.
Access the community and maintain friendships during various activities from bowling to dinner and a movie.
Learn or develop painting skills and build friendships in a class setting. Then display your best work in one of The Arc's many public art shows.
Sell or display your artwork at one of The Arc's openings, in our InSight Gallery or in the community.
Create and communicate with professional level staff. Practice with costumes, props and sets. Then, perform in live public shows. Hosted by Elks Lodge in Corvallis.
