Launching Journal On!

How we journey through this moment, one page at a time.

What’s it like being you right now? How has your life been changed? How will you look back on this moment? We want to hear from you!

The Portland Art Museum, Portland Public Schools, and Create More, Fear Less are assembling one enduring art journal, made up of many, to capture our shared story of this unique moment in history.

To participate, just respond to the prompts at or follow along on Instagram @journal_on_everyone. Then, upload an image of your work to our online gallery. 

We’ll post a new prompt every week this summer through mid-August. Each one features a short video by an artist, and we are excited to launch the project with a beautiful video by Binta Loos-Diallo

Share your drawings, words, or photos. Use any creative expression you want. If you’re a musician, dancer, or other kind of artist that doesn’t fit on a journal page, we’d love to see your creation or process captured in a still image. 

If you’d like to make your own art journal using materials around your house, here’s how.
