Pacific Art League

A passion for art and community since 1921


The impact of your gifts to the Pacific Art League goes beyond the dollar amount. Your generous 100% tax-deductible contributions help make possible our high-quality art programs throughout the San Francisco Peninsula.


“I started taking classes here years ago. Then it was my children. This summer my first grandchild went to the PAL Summer Camp.
“PAL is the true hidden gem in this high-tech center where art is often a rare luxury.
“I’ll always be very grateful to them for supporting me as a local artist by extending my first acceptance last year. I’ve since been in quite a few shows here and look forward to being featured in many more.


Known for our long history of providing high caliber art instruction for adults, over the last year PAL has also expanded and improved our after-school programs for kids both at 668 Ramona and beyond. Additionally, through your generous support, PAL has been able to successfully expand our Community Youth Art Programs, bringing quality art classes to underserved communities across the mid-peninsula.

You can read more about PAL's Community Youth Art Programs HERE.  Every $100 you give secures a place for one child for 10-weeks in one of our innovative programs, bringing the joy and developmental benefits of art to kids and young people across the region.


There are some individuals who brighten up a room simply by their presence. For Pacific Art League, Robin Welles was one such person. Her dedication to PAL and her love of art were legendary. Her laugh was infectious and her heart immense and through the Robin Welles fund Pacific Art League will carry on her legacy by providing art education to all.
