The ADoor Project
Of The Pacific Northwest

The Adoor Project of the Pacific Northwest, organized by Harbor Art Guild, thanks all who participated in our first artistic door silent auction.
This succesful first annual Adoor Project provides scholarship funds to benefit a graduate of the Aberdeen or Hoquiam High School Senior class.

One of the problems faced by high school graduates is continuing education, especially for those graduates whose interests are more in line with
technical and trades training. Up to this point there has been little local support for trade school attendees.
This scholarship addresses that need.

About Us

Old doors for new art & scholarships.


ADoor Project of the Pacific NorthWest is a nonprofit program under Harbor Art Guild’s 501 (C)(3). The purpose of this program is to provide qualified graduating high school seniors with a scholarship toward a Technical Career. High school counselors may provide students with a list of technical programs which students can pursue.

Roots & History

In 2018 Debbi Jensen and Gladys Whitney formed Sweeping Beauties of 98520, to help new business owners clean out space to open in a timely manner. That evolved into beautifying vacant storefronts with decorated doors that were donated by Earthwise Architectural Savage in Aberdeen, and then painted by students and community members. They changed the name in 2019 to Adoor Project of the Pacific North West under the guidance and leadership of Douglas Orr’s of Aberdeen Art Centers and President of Harbor Art Guild, a 501 (c)(3).  Jensen recruited Tammy Heth and the two of them proceeded to introduce the Adoor Project to Aberdeen High School counselors.  This program allowed students to apply hours worked on Adoor Project toward the 15 hours of community service to graduate.  Many students and community members participated in painting the doors which were shown at the Goldberg Building, DNR, Mount Olympus Brewery, Nirvana Coffee and several other sites.  Covid 19 slowed the process but the group proceeded and started a silent auction through HAG.  All Adoor Project sales funds are available to sponsor three Aberdeen High School seniors toward CTE later this year.

The Future

The Adoor Project contemplates changing plans to expand the silent auction items from just doors to projects the CTE high school seniors produce along with community members.  Ideas for students participation are still being discussed at this moment.  Come back to review our progress and see the fast moving pace of changes here at the Adoor Project of the PNW Website
