The Portal

What is it?

Where the community meets Toledo School for the arts

Where the community meets Toledo School for the Arts. The Portal represents one of the largest investments made in TSA’s growth since its inception. This extension of the school aims to bridge the gap between the institution itself and the incredible community that surrounds it, bringing the school into the community and the community into the school. It also acts as the school’s largest form of arts entrepreneurship, the enterprise of applying a business model to the products of the arts with the aim of increasing TSA’s sustainability.

Shop TSA

Our ShopTSA Store features an inventory of one of a kind, handmade objects produced exclusively by TSA students, staff, and alumni. You’ll find everything from apparel to wall art to our signature kiln-made glass. Our store serves as one of our primary Arts Entrepreneurship initiatives, contributing to TSA’s furthered sustainability.
