With generous support from the PGE Foundation, the Portland Art Museum has created a set of posters featuring works across the permanent collections. Posters are available free of charge to educators in Oregon and Washington. Hang them in classrooms, hallways, and libraries or take them out for specific activities and lessons. Our goal is to provide educators and students with artworks you can study and enjoy wherever you are.
How we journey through this moment, one page at a time. Support your students in navigating today’s challenges through the creative practice of journaling. Find prompts, artist videos, and an online gallery here.
Museum partner Write Around Portland provides creative writing prompts related to works in the permanent collection. This archive will continue to grow throughout fall 2020 and inspire writers of all ages.
