During this three day intensive institute at Seattle Art Museum and Olympic Sculpture Park, explore ideas around native perspective, voices, histories, and cultures. Participants will work with local artists and experts and create artwork examining representation, tradition, and identity. Inspired by Double Exposure: Edward S. Curtis, Marianne Nicolson, Tracy Rector, Will Wilson, participants will unpack different representations of Native people by both Native and non-Native artists.

Gain inspiration and teaching techniques to refresh your practice for a new year of teaching!


I loved how engaging and exploratory the Institute was. Presentations and workshops were inspiring and useful, and helped me push myself as a teacher. I can't wait to incorporate what I learned. Definitely sharing this and coming back.
