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 a child’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 provide art education at no charge to schools, teachers, parents, and art educators. Artists of the Pacific Northwest support our endeavor. Any work purchased on our site supports Northwest Artists and the mission of Golden Road Arts.

  • We develop teaching videos to support educators.
  • 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.
