Spend your Washington State In-Service Day at the Seattle Asian Art Museum! Check out our virtual morning program for more information.

In this workshop, explore how words and images come together to foster connections between artists and the world around them. Take in artworks from the Seattle Asian Art Museum's collection, as well as pieces from the special exhibition Beyond the Mountain: Contemporary Chinese Artists on the Classical Forms. Led by SAM educators, attendees will experience works of art that use multiple modes of artistic expression, then try out engagement strategies for encouraging their students to do the same through discussing and making art.

All attendees are asked to wear a mask when not actively eating or drinking during this workshop.
