Jr. League NW Art Project

The Northwest Art Project brings arts learning directly to the classroom through traveling art exhibits, training for educators, and PTSA docents. Participants are equipped with inquiry-based lesson plans and activities to support multi-dimensional arts learning. Trained educators and docents then return to their schools to teach in the presence of the original artwork. Through informal and intimate discussion of thematically organized exhibits in the school setting, students learn critical thinking and communication skills. This unique and innovative program enables students and teachers to experience an art museum in their own school setting.

Traveling Art Exhibits

The NW Art Collection of 89 pieces is divided into 10 thematic exhibits with accompanying curricula that infuses art across a range of disciplines including language arts, social studies, science, and math. Each exhibit offers art education activity materials to support docent educators. Schools experience a full five weeks with the exhibit in their school. Touring exhibitions drawn from the Junior League of Seattle’s Northwest Art Collection are rotated each year.
