Expression in the arts enriches our lives

index_2_405378529 index_2_867777279The Community Arts Project was founded in 1988 and endeavors to create environments that enable people to freely explore healthy avenues of learning and expression in the arts, believing that this enriches the lives of all who live and work in our north Oregon Coast communities.

Every summer since 1995, CAP has presented its children’s art program, Slug Soup. In 2002, funded by a three-year start-up grant from a local foundation, CAP initiated its Art Literacy program at Nestucca Valley Elementary School. A second Art Literacy program was begun in 2005 at Garibaldi Grade School.

Our CAP fundraising events spotlight the arts and are well-attended. We are active and viable non-profit organization with a very successful record of providing meaningful and enjoyable art experiences for people of all ages.
