The Art Beat Classroom: Illustration

Oregon Art Beat is excited to share our extensive archive of Oregon artist’s as content-rich support for educators. In this illustration collection, you’ll meet artists informed by science and nature as they imagine our prehistoric world and create intricate designs. Keen observation and inspiration from personal stories lead to incredible portraits in pencil and a life story told in DIY 'Zines.
