A Smile Really Pays!


Did you know? If you sign into your Amazon account at AmazonSmile and select Hoffman Center under Arts and Culture charities, ½ of 1 percent of all your purchases will be donated to us? At no cost to you!  Easy Peasy and pennies will flow. Some folks can’t be bothered with pennies anymore, but we definitely count ours!

In other news – lots of activity at the Hoffman, so check the Hoffman Calendar and peruse your choices. Right now, you can still sign up to appreciate the history of vocal music starting March 17 or join a writing class, take botanical drawing, or get your ceramics fired through our kiln services.

Our Gallery is free to visit—this month featuring 55 community artists from the North Oregon Coast interpreting the theme Black and Blue. Alert: don’t miss the fun on Manzanita Day March 31! Concocted by volunteer Ketzel Levine, we’re celebrating our namesake town for the second year. Proceeds from raffle and virtual talk go to maintaining our Hoffman Wonder Garden, the “place to meet” for those in the know.

Scholarships to defray the expense of classes are available for those residing within 50 miles of the Hoffman! Check out Scholarships.

The Hoffman is all about building community through creating, connecting, and exploring the world of art. We’d love to hear from you.
