Support the future of the arts in the Tigard-Tualatin area

Art in the Burbs was purposefully and creatively designed to weave local artists with student artists.  20% of each artist’s sales will be retained to benefit The Foundation for Tigard Tualatin Schools’ (FTTS’) Art in the Burbs Grant program. Grants are awarded to each of the district’s schools to use only in their Arts programs – music, fine art, performing art, and writing. FTTS is a 501(c)3 organization.

Art in the Burbs provides a financial vehicle to enrich students’ lives through the arts.  Click here to see how proceeds from last year’s show were used.

CFT Bird Project 2016
Our Art in the Burbs partnership allows us to intentionally connect student artwork to student learning. In 2016 this helped our kids learn about John Audubon’s work and metal fabrication’s role in sculpture.  This led to an awesome project that we’ll be able to display for years to come. Ryan Blasquez
