How are artists inspired by their cultural heritage? How can they transform shared experiences in their communities into works of art?

Focusing on the Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: Memory Map at SAM, this virtual workshop will examine the artist’s influences and the messages in her work.

Participants will brainstorm how to integrate techniques such as using found text and mixed media in their classrooms, as well as prompts for fostering student discussions around identity and their communities.

Registration for this program is free and 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.
