Education Programs at the Schack

Sponsor of Art Education Programs

Schack's K-12 education programs offer unique learning opportunities through accredited teacher workshops, art docent training for parent/volunteers, a lending library of Art Outreach Suitcases, an annual college scholarship, art competitions for middle and high school students, exhibition space, gallery field trips, and weekly art classes for incarcerated youth.

These programs offer students and teachers the ability to develop critical understandings of art and culture and their relationship to our own lives.

Today around 14,000 students and educators from public, private, and home schools in Snohomish County participate in our art education programs every year.

September-June, Outreach Suitcases are available for classroom use and contain art objects that students may handle and examine, a teaching guide, transparencies, and lesson plans.

Remaining programming for this year:

April 27-May 27, Exhibit - Latino Art will provide a range of Latino Art from carvings and pottery to paintings to fiber arts and jewelry and draw on pre-Columbian indigenous motifs and stories.

May 15-26, Field Trips - Latino Art include 75 minute sessions consisting of a docent led tour, artists in action, and a hands-on activity. The experience familiarizes students with the spiritual and cultural complexity of Latin American art forms, as well as basic art skills used in making of artifacts. The main goal is to increase cross-cultural awareness of Latino Identity, as well as an understanding of how art is used to pass on to future generations a people's history, values, and traditions.
