ArtReach Partnership: Sumner and Vashon High Schools

Since 2017, CAM has partnered with Vashon High School to ensure a consistent art curriculum is available for students. Resident Teaching Artists and museum staff provide weekly art classes throughout the year. In 2021, CAM 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. Annual exhibitions of student work made in these programs is celebrated in the spring and summer in CAM’s Education Galleries.
