Celebrate the opening of Calder: In Motion, The Shirley Family Collection with your peers at SAM!

Discover recent additions to the Seattle Art Museum's collection that will appeal to students of all ages. Enjoy the energetic and poetic works of Alexander Calder in the galleries, sign up for school tours, and pick up related K-12 classroom resources in the Educator Lounge.

SAM will provide appetizers, wine, and an art activity-all educators need to bring is enthusiasm for these dynamic artworks with project-based learning classroom connections across a range of subjects.

Please note: the entrance for this event is located on 2nd Ave and University St.

Free for K–12 educators, paraeducators, subject area coaches, administrators, teaching artists, and arts education advocates. Registration includes one educator and one guest.

Support for K-12 programs during the 2023-2024 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.

Seattle Art Museum respectfully acknowledges that we are on Indigenous land, the traditional territories of the Coast Salish people. We honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future.
