Painting for a Purpose

The mission of PAINTING FOR A PURPOSE (PFP) is to create a strong community of painters to share the camaraderie and fun of painting together and to have our painting serve a greater purpose. PFP brings people together to create hand painted “whimsical” furniture, hosts an annual auction to sell the furniture and uses the proceeds to fund youth led service learning grants for students in the Portland Public Schools.
