Virtual Educator Workshop: Ukiyo-e in Your Classroom

Dec 2 2023

Seattle Art Museum


10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Learn more about the process behind Japanese woodblock printing and the artist who created the iconic The Great Wave off of Kanagawa in this virtual workshop led by SAM Educators.

Make connections between Hokusai’s artwork and curriculum in Visual Arts, Social Studies, English Language Arts, and more. Educators at SAM and the East Asia Resource Center at the University of Washington will share insights on facilitating conversations and creating projects based on the ongoing exhibition Hokusai: Inspiration and Influence, from the Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Then educators will try out art-making activities with materials they have on hand and will share ideas for how this might be adapted in their teaching settings.

Registration for this program is free. This program includes resources and Washington State Clock Hours. Classroom educators, paraeducators, subject area coaches, and administrators are welcome to attend.

Support for K-12 programs during the 2023-2024 school year is provided by the BNSF Railway Foundation and Foster 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.
