Brief blurb and CTA on education aspect
Brief blurb and CTA on supporters/gallery aspect
Golden Road Arts is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Hillsboro, Oregon. We are a dedicated group of artists and art educators with a vision to recognize how important the arts are to children’s development. It is a documented fact that children who make art in school on a regular basis do better in all their other subjects. We want to make that happen at no charge to teachers, school districts, and homeschoolers. Artists of the Pacific Northwest support our endeavor. Any work purchased on our site supports Northwest Artists and the mission of Golden Road Arts.

Golden Road Arts is focused on free art education

  • We develop teaching videos to support teachers and homeschoolers.
  • We promote art education, art appreciation and artists.
  • We share how the arts shape lives and careers that derive from art education.
  • We promote creativity in all artistic mediums.
  • Grade-specific videos, PD downloads and art curriculum that meet the State of Oregon standards are free. We ask that you sign in to download so we know who is using our stuff.
