Artist Resources

Art's Friends


There are many resources available to expand Art's reach. Art may be encountered in the classroom, at a dance recital, at a dress rehearsal, on the label of a favorite beverage, in the distinctive lines of well-designed building or through other local and national agencies.

We in Beaverton are fortunate to have so many resources available to access Art. Whether you want to share a love of music, develop an eye for photography or feed a passion for painting, the support our community has shown offers plenty of opportunities to explore Art.

Contact these organizations for more information on grants, workshops and other resources available for artists. There are also several local performance groups who invite and encourage volunteers to join.
