Keizer Art Association was incorporated in 1977 by three founding volunteer members; Don Walton, Marge Bowder and Enid Joy Mount. Enid Joy Mount, a local teacher, was very determined that children have a chance to experience and create art. She helped them find clay in the natural environment (located under horsetail plants) and then make objects they could wood-fire with her help. We remain 100% volunteer! (Only the art instructors are paid!)

OUR MISSION

“The Keizer Art Association is organized to encourage the creation, understanding, and appreciation of arts in the community; to gather objects of art for display and interpretation; provide a marketplace for selling art, and to have as a final goal, the participation of members of the community as part of the total art education process.”
