Portland Art Museum, Portland Public Schools and Create More, Fear Less have teamed up to provide an outlet for students to share their journey through life amid COVID-19.

Every Saturday through mid-August, a new prompt will be posted at journalon.org and their Instagram page (@journal_on_everyone) to help our community’s youth address what it’s like being them right now; how their life has changed and how they expect to look back at this time.

Participants are encouraged to use the creative expression of their choice: drawings, words or photos. Those whose expressions aren’t easily captured in one of those forms (example, musicians or dancers), are encouraged to share their creation or process captured in a still image.

Files are to be uploaded at journalon.org with a few pieces of information about the artist: first name or initials, age, email address and the title of the piece or a comment about it.

Email addresses will not be published and artists have the option whether or not to display their age. Participants under 13 years old need to have a parent or guardian complete the submission form.
