Columbia Art and Drafting has been a fixture in the Portland community for over 25 years. We’ve been at our current location at 1515 E. Burnside since the very beginning, growing from a small drafting supply store to the robust, comprehensive art goods hub we are today.

Owner Bang Tran began selling drafting tables, drafting machines, tubes and portfolios from our storefront in 1990 and has been growing the business ever since. Today, Columbia is Portland’s largest independently-owned art store and also houses Tran Products, a manufacturer of artist portfolios, pencil, marker and brush cases.
