Summer Institute for Educators: Learning From the Local

Aug 7–8 2024

10:30 am–4 pm

Seattle Art Museum

Arnold Board Room

Join fellow educators from across the region for an in-gallery exploration of how Northwest artists utilize a variety of mediums to express their identities and ideas. Then, try out lesson plans and hands-on activities inspired by SAM’s ongoing exhibitions.

This workshop will make connections between counterculture, community, diversity, and narratives, while highlighting SAM’s collection and Poke in the Eye: Art of the West Coast Counterculture.

Join us for this two-day in-person workshop at the Seattle Art Museum. Explore, learn, and create with a community of educator peers.

Support for K-12 programs during the 2022-2023 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.

Educator Workshops

Educator Workshops provide teachers with rich opportunities to relate the arts directly to lived experiences. SAM’s virtual and on-site professional development workshops offer K–12 educators and administrators techniques and ideas for integrating popular culture, art, and cultural objects into classroom learning.
