ArtReach: Sumner and Vashon High Schools

After four years of working within Vashon High School to provide weekly art classes throughout the year, CAM has expanded its ArtReach Partnership program to include the historic Sumner High School. The expansion came as part of a broader revival effort that CAM and other community partners are infusing into Sumner—the first African American high school west of the Mississippi—to prevent its closure. Artwork from both schools’ fall 2021 semester is featured in CAM’s Education Galleries, including textile, painting, and drawing projects created under the mentorship of Resident Teaching Artists Yvonne Anguiano, Misato Pang, and Simiya Sudduth. Over the course of the second semester, Jayvn Solomon and Janie Stamm will join the students and work toward an artful end-of-year celebration.
