Guided Tours & Art Workshops
Guided tours and art workshops are inquiry-based experiences for K–12 students led by trained docents and Teaching Artists. Tours are aligned with Washington State education standards and can be tailored to specific curriculum needs.
Guided Tour Only
Led by trained docents, Guided Tour Only programs are inquiry-based experiences for K–12 students that do not include an art workshop. Tours are aligned with Washington State education standards and can be tailored to specific curriculum needs.
Do-It-Yourself: Self-Guided Visits
Self-guided visits allow educators to customize their museum experiences by leading their own tours through the galleries. We recommend that teachers divide their classes into small, chaperone-led groups of 5–10 students depending on their age.
Email us for a free educator pass to visit the galleries in advance of your class's visit.
Art Goes to School Multi-Session Program
Led by SAM Teaching Artists, Art Goes to School engages students in interactive art-making workshops that can be held in conjunction with a museum visit or as a stand-alone creative experience in your classroom. Contact the School Tours Coordinator for requests more than 20 miles away from the museum.
