Portland Art & Learning Studio

This Portland Art gallery doubles as a studio that supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  

The Portland Art & Learning Studio is a 10,000 square foot gallery devoted to showcasing Outsider Art in Portland, Oregon.

The gallery doubles as a studio space for close to 200 artists that experience intellectual & developmental disabilities. Artists have access to a diverse array of supplies in open format studios devoted to painting, drawing, ceramics, textiles, and digital media. All of which, have made advancements in adaptive technologies to suit each artists’ individual needs.  

New exhibits featuring immersive installations, sculptures, murals, and more go up monthly in the Portland Art & Learning Studio’s gallery. Opening receptions are open to the public and generally happen on the last Thursday of every month.

The Portland Art & Learning Studio is part of the nonprofit Albertina Kerr, which aims to strengthen Oregon families and communities by empowering people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
