Virtual Educator Workshop: Storytelling in Asian Art

Oct 14 2022

Seattle Asian Art Museum


11 AM – NOON

Spend your Washington State In-Service Day with the Seattle Asian Art Museum! Check out our in-person afternoon program for more information.

In this virtual workshop, educators will engage with artworks from the Seattle Asian Art Museum, as well as other pieces in SAM's collection that draw inspiration from Asian art. They will practice facilitating conversations that draw out stories and personal connections, as well as listen to a guest speaker from the University of Washington East Asia Resource Center about how culturally specific objects tell stories.

This workshop is free for K–12 educators to attend. It includes resources and Washington State Clock hours. Classroom educators, paraeducators, subject area coaches, and administrators are welcome to attend. Registrations to this event are greatly appreciated.

Support for K-12 programs during the 2022-2023 school year is provided by the BNSF Railway Foundation, Foster Foundation, and Freeman Foundation. Partial, sustained support for SAM’s K-12 programs is provided by an endowment established in 1999 by a National Endowment for the Humanities challenge grant and the generous contributions of matching donors, including the Ann P. Wyckoff Education Endowment. The William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Education Programs at the Seattle Art Museum has supported SAM K–12 programs since 1994.
