Our mission is to match the unique and wonderful artwork of children as they perceive the world and all its wondrous
resources, with unique products that make a statement as gifts, promotional products, or for personal use.
We hope you enjoy this art as much as we do -- and the importance of the subject matter, even though some of it makes you smile and laugh -- for it is the earth in all its wonder that is the basis of life. And it is by those who sustainably, thoughtfully, and with so much work, take of the earth that provides for the rest of us. Children capture in art their interpretation of this wondrous process and the plants and animals involved.
The artwork comes from the Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom Program (AITC). The more successful this website, the more we will donate to AITC! Feel good about shopping by helping support hands-on learning, agricultural literacy, and teacher training. Help us go viral!
A bit about us:
Our dream is to share with the world the wonderful, delightful, and insightful art about the earth created by children (K-6 grades), by showcasing it on this website. We strongly believe this art -- pared with unique items you choose on which to print the art -- can inspire a smile, start a conversation, or simply serve as a functional statement.
Here we are volunteering at the Agriculture in the Classroom workstation at the OR AgFest event, 2012. We're helping the kids make "living necklaces" with pinto beans which they can watch sprout inside a small plastic bag. The event helps kids and families understand where food comes from and the many things that make Oregon Agriculture special.
There's just a few of us! We believe in this effort, and hope you'll join us by choosing to purchase artwork products from this site.
