The Poster Project
The Portland Art Museum has created more than 25 posters featuring works across the permanent collections. Explore the digital resource and request prints of the most recent posters mailed to you. 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.
Social emotional learning and art
The Portland Art Museum collaborates with OK You to develop these creative wellness resources for young people, parents, educators, and all of us.
How we journey through changing times. During the summers of 2020 and 2021, the Portland Art Museum, Portland Public Schools, OK YOU, and two dozen artists invited you to consider your experience of the pandemic amidst so much change and loss. Where did you discover hope, possibility, connection, and new understanding? As our world continues to bring new changes and challenges, we invite you to revisit these 24 prompts and this video playlist to process the journey and discover new possibilities, connection, and healing along the way. Journal On!
Create More Resilience workshop videos
Join 5 artists on a creative journey to discover, celebrate, and share the amazing, unique, powerful, and lovable you. Portland Art Museum is excited to partner with OK You and artists from many backgrounds and disciplines to provide workshop videos that use creative practices to build on social-emotional learning goals. Each artist has created a series of 8, resilience-building workshop videos for teachers, counselors, and parents to share with students of all ages.

Open your own art museum
Take all of those big feelings, ideas, and observations of yours and shrink them down into tiny (but mighty) works of art—because art doesn’t need to be big to be powerful! Learn how.
Write Around PAM
Come write with us! We collaborated with Write Around Portland to create art-inspired writing prompts for people of all ages to do at home and at the Museum.
Memory and Public Space: An Educator Unconference
How do we use public space to remember? How do monuments, parks, neighborhoods, and streets work as sites to memorialize, create, negotiate—and even forget—history? The Portland Art Museum is collaborating with museums and cultural organizations across the state to provide resources for exploring these questions and ideas with students.
