Spring Educator Preview: Ikat: A World of Compelling Cloth

Mar 8 2023

Seattle Art Museum

Arnold Board Room (entire)

4 PM – 7 PM

SAM celebrates educators! K-12 educators are invited to visit the new special exhibition Ikat: A World of Compelling Cloth before it opens to the public and usher in the spring with inspiring colors, patterns, and textiles.

In the Educator Lounge, pick up free classroom resources and get creative with hands-on art activities. Mingle with peers over complimentary wine and appetizers, then head over to the rest of the museum to enjoy community partner programming taking place throughout the museum, including performances and My Favorite Things tours.

Please note: Educators must enter through the entrance on 2nd Ave and University St. in order to sign in. They will pick up their tickets at the registration table in front of Arnold Board Room.

Free for K–12 educators, teaching artists, and arts education advocates. RSVPs to this event are greatly appreciated.
