Recent Press

The Portland Art & Learning Studio was recently featured in RAW VISION magazine and the Oregon ArtsWatch

Raw Vision is the world's only international journal of the art of “unknown geniuses”. Untrained, unschooled and uninfluenced by the art world, their work stuns and amazes. They invent their own forms, techniques and create private worlds. 

Oregon ArtsWatch is a non-profit arts and culture journalism project that explores the arts and their intersection with the wider culture in Oregon and the Northwest.
