Fall Gallery Tour for Educators: Hokusai’s Global Impact

Oct 28 2023

Seattle Art Museum

Brotman Forum

10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Join us for an interactive and in-depth gallery experience filled with approaches for talking about art with students!

Move through our fall exhibition, Hokusai: Inspiration and Influence, from the Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in a collaborative group setting with a focus on dialogue and student voice. Participants will gain new ideas and techniques to bring conversations about artistic expression, inspiration, and cultural exchange back to their classrooms. Share with peers and learn what would be relevant for a range of learning settings, as well as how to apply these techniques.

Registration for this program is free with attendance capped at 20 participants. This program includes free printed 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.
