We are excited to announce that the Gresham-Barlow School District is the first district in the Portland area to connect The Right Brain Initiative with every single elementary school. We’re on the hunt to make the arts a basic part of every child’s education—regardless of what school they attend—so this is a big milestone for us, and we congratulate the district for prioritizing the arts in this way.


We’re celebrating this wonderful partnership at the Gresham Public Library on Monday, April 14 from 5-6pm and we’d love for you to join us. Whether you know Right Brain well, or are eager to hear more about what we do, we invite you to take part. See how students in Gresham used printmaking and paper mache to learn about science, and to explore their local community. Watch students perform a movement piece that interprets their own original poems.

We’re excited about the opportunities the future holds as we continue to work to bring whole brain, creative learning to every school in the Portland area. Thanks for supporting us!
