Creative Arts Community at Menucha (aka "Art Camp" and "Arts at Menucha")

Week 1: August 1-7

Week 2: August 8-14

Residential art workshops for adults

Space limited to 10 students per class

Registration has closed.

There will be three workshops happening at Menucha each week. Workshops are limited to 10 participants each. Classes will be held in three open-air studios spaces: the Kennel & Orchard, the Barn Patio and Beam House driveway & garage.


Most participants will have their own bedroom. If you’ve been vaccinated and are past the recommended 2-week waiting period and request a specific roommate(s), then 2-3 people can be in a room together.

Housing will be in Wright Hall, Ballard Hall, Beam House, Lindsay House and the Barn. If you have any mobility concerns, please let us know so we may assign you an appropriate room.

All participants stay at Menucha, there is not a commuter option for Creative Arts at Menucha in 2021.


Menucha's kitchen prepares excellent, plentiful, cooked-from-scratch meals. If you have any dietary restrictions, we'll ask you to fill out a form ahead of time so we may prepare to feed you properly. Due to pandemic health restrictions, meals will likely be served take-out style (in individual boxes on trays). Participants may opt to eat at a dining room table (socially distanced from any other guests), in your room, on the terrace, at a picnic table outside, etc.  As Multnomah County guidelines change, we will update this description.

Note: Meals are not optional for class participants. No non-class members will be allowed for meals or visits during the week -the one exception being the Art Walk on Friday.

More Health and Safety Changes

We encourage all participants to get their COVID shots. All health precautions will be in place following the latest CDC guidelines.  This year guests for meals and at evening events will not be allowed. You can have a friend or family member help you unpack and pack up at week’s end but be sure everyone in your party has a mask and follows all CDC protocols.
