8th Annual Studio Tour November 27 & 28 ~ PAA’s Peninsula-wide studio tour will be held over Thanksgiving Weekend.  This two-day event encompasses 13 locations between Ilwaco and Surfside. PAA artists open their studios and galleries to the public for demonstrations, sales, and the chance to see meet our artists. Most studio locations will host more than one artist and PAA member-owned galleries and art related shops will be on the tour as well. All offer the chance to “talk art” with PAA artists.


White, black and red PAA Art Event signs clearly mark the way to the next studio. Free Studio Tour maps, with additional directions and information are available . Information will also be posted in the  Chinook Observer and on our Facebook page.


This is a great way to see the peninsula and to introduce visitors and locals to our art community while finding unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for the holiday season!

Scholarship Peninsula Arts Association awards an annual scholarship of $1000 to a high school graduate from the Naselle Grays River or Ocean Beach School Districts.  The scholarship may be used to further the student’s visual art education in college, purchase supplies, media or equipment to enhance their artistic endeavors or pay fees for art related workshops.  The award is determined by a process of application, grade point average, letter of interest and intent regarding art, references, a portfolio of completed art work and interview with the Peninsula Arts Association Scholarship Committee.


Art Enrichment Peninsula Arts Association is committed to encouraging art throughout the local community of artists, students, seniors, residents and visitors.  We support many community activities such as the 4th of July Parade, Community Christmas Tree ornaments, Santa’s Workshop (all Ocean Park area events), the Summerfest Program in Long Beach, art related projects at local schools and more.  We have re-designed our Art Box Program to better serve the area’s teachers with art supplies and curriculum compatible lesson plans available to “check out” according to their (the teachers) busy schedules.  We also serve as a clearing house of information about the many area art happenings through our Facebook page, web site and with bulletin emails to membership.  PAA strives to bring the joy of art to as many people as possible through exhibitions and sponsored art events.  Our Art Enrichment Program is ever changing to meet the needs of our community. Due to the kind and generous offer from the City of Long Beach, we now have a home base to hold meetings, store all the basics needed to put on an art show and conduct art workshops.  Member workshops, called Meet Ups are in process and public workshops for all ages will first be offered this summer.  Our green and white office is located just behind the Old Train Depot in Long Beach.
