Community Festival

Saturday, January 19, 2019, 10am-4pm, FREE

Celebrate the grand opening of the Benaroya Wing with performances, art-making, and more! Groove to music, experience original poetry and dance inspired by works of art on view, and experiment with fused glass and printmaking processes.

TAM Teach! The Art of Science

We often think of science and art as opposites – “left-brain” and “right-brain.” But scientists and artists have a lot in common! Learn how artistic practices mirror NGSS Practices and support Crosscutting Concepts. Get a special, private up-close look at works of glass art in the new Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Wing. Experience a science-related art activity, and walk away with new ideas for arts integration in your own classroom.

This workshop is a collaboration between Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass. TAM Teach! workshops are open to all K–12 educators, including classroom teachers, administrators, and specialists.

Educator Preview

Get a special sneak peek at the new Rebecca and Jack Benaroya Wing! Join us for a reception with hors d’oeuvres and a hosted bar. Explore the new wing before it opens to the public, and hear how Tacoma Art Museum’s education programs can support your students’ learning throughout the year.

To extend your learning, join us for a clock-hours-eligible TAM Teach! workshop earlier in the day.

The Educator Preview is open to all educators, PreK through university level.

Come to Homeschool Day!

Join us for a special day just for homeschool students! Explore glass art in TAM’s brand new Benaroya Wing. Create your own art work, learning from an expert teaching artist.
