Fall in-service day with the Seattle Asian Art Museum

Program date: October 14, 2022

In the morning, teachers joined us virtually for Storytelling in Asian Art.  In the afternoon, they attended the in-person workshop, Connecting Words and Images at the Seattle Asian Art Museum.  The morning virtual workshop and the afternoon in-person workshop could be attended together or separately.  Both programs were free but each require separate registrations.

Fall Educator Virtual Workshop: Storytelling in Asian Art

11:00AM-12:00PM (Pacific Time) online (PROGRAM FULL)

In this virtual workshop, educators engaged with artwork from the Seattle Asian Art Museum, as well as other pieces in the museum’s collection that drew inspiration from Asian art. They practiced facilitating conversations that drew out stories and personal connection, and heard from East Asia Resource Center’s Melanie King about how culturally specific objects tell stories.


Educators received resource links and free clock hours.

Fall Educator In-Person Workshop: Connecting Words and Images

2:30PM-4:00PM (Pacific Time) at the Seattle Asian Art Museum (SPACES AVAILABLE)

This in-person workshop explored how words and images come together to foster connections between artists and the world around them.  Educators took in works of art from the Seattle Asian Art Museum’s collection, as well as pieces from the special exhibition Beyond the Mountain: Contemporary Chinese Artists on the Classical Forms. Participants experienced works of art that use multiple modes of artistic expression, then tried out engagement strategies to encourage students to do the same through discussing and making art


Educators received resources and free clock hours.

This program was sponsored by the East Asia Resource Center at the University of Washington, and funded by a Freeman Foundation grant in support of the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA).
