Teaching Students of All Ages

Consider the rewards of sharing your talents with kids or adults in an educational setting! Our community needs your unique viewpoint, your mastery of technique and media, and your expressive voice! Most importantly, teaching is fun! It allows you to reflect on your own art practices and rediscover them through the eyes of your students.

The goal of experiential programs at SAM is to provide a deeper understanding of artwork and artists which SAM features in any of our rotating exhibitions. As artists and educators, we serve as invaluable resources for visitors who are looking for connections between art and their lives. We can empower our community family members with new ways for appreciating art and developing personal aesthetics.
