The Original Art 2022 Virtual Tour


Each year, The Original Art offers a showcase for the most outstanding children’s book illustrations published in the U.S.

It is our pleasure to bring to schools the opportunity to view the show virtually, focusing attention on a collection of acclaimed, award-winning illustrators who demonstrate innovation in technique, media and trends in children’s book art and visual storytelling, including the 4 medal honor winners for 2022.

The video will be accessible for one month after purchase.


The Original Art exhibition is on display at the Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in Manhattan for the months of November and December each year. To learn more about this annual exhibit, click here.

We hope that students enjoy this virtual tour and that they are inspired to create their own characters and stories.

The tour draws attention to the unique styles and approaches to picture books. Teachers can guide discussions and drawing activities using the PDF worksheet. A full list of featured artists and book titles can be found here.
