Hello! Thank you for visiting! As the creator of Virtual Artists, my mission is to provide accessible arts to every household, regardless of where you are. In partnership with Planting Seeds, we are fundraising to address Beaverton's homeless crisis, while engaging youth with artistic opportunities. These virtual art classes will help youth express and channel themselves through creativity and collaboration. Your generous donations will be given to those experiencing financial insecurity and possible eviction.

Ethan is a passionate ballet dancer and proponent of community service. His dancing career began when he was just 4 years old, and since then he's won multiple awards, including the Beaverton Arts Foundation Scholarship for Outstanding Artistic Talent. His commitment to the community began when he served as the Co-Chair and Civic Affairs Officer on the Beaverton Mayor's Youth Advisory Board (MYAB). He will be a freshman attending Harvard in the fall of 2020, and he hopes to continue making a broader impact on the community and exploring the arts academically.
