Spring Educator Tour: Amplifying Student Voice through Jaune Quick-to-See Smith

Mar 2 2024

Seattle Art Museum

Brotman Forum

10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Working with paint, collage with found objects, printmaking, and more, Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith has used art throughout her storied career to respond to environmental destruction and colonialism. She has also used visual art to reflect on her heritage and artistic traditions of her cultural background.

During this interactive gallery experience, educators will make connections between the artworks in Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith: Memory Map and their curricula. Educators will experience teaching practices that promote collective learning and allow students to share their perspectives.

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.

This exhibition was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Generous support for Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: Memory Map is provided by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Terra Foundation for American Art.
