For the Love of Making

Sometimes we all need a little love. And you know ADX likes to spread the love around.

Through the ADX Scholarship Fund, we help under-served people who might not normally have access to our programs and services. Because these folks have heart. (Not to mention skillz.)

Come meet our first cohort of scholarship recipients, see their wares, and learn about the businesses they’ve built as part of the ADX community!


Donisha Polk, Soothing Dreams


You might know Donisha from Soothing Dreams, where she sells her unique crystal soaps. She’s passionate about the positive energies these stones and geodes can provide in our times of need, and has been perfecting her craft for years alongside her 10-year-old son.

Davide Richland, Think Outside the Can


Dave graduated from PSU’s graphic design program back in 2000. Since 2017, Dave’s been designing custom vinyl patterns on upcycled cans. Handmade with love, he makes these intricate, colorful creations at ADX, and you might see him selling them on the streets of Portland.

Blue, @artocracy18


As an artist, Blue works in a variety of mediums, from wood burning and acrylic paints to colored pencil, carving and sculpture. Whether creating from his own vision or designing custom commissions, he’s grateful for the privilege of creating images and stories with his hands.
