Art at K-12 Schools

Approximately 70% of Washington's State Art Collection (of nearly 5,000 artworks) is located in K-12 public schools across the state.

Public art enhances and enlivens the built environment and atmosphere of these spaces. This is particularly important in learning environments, where arts experiences have been shown to increase the potential for children to learn.

Public art can also serve as a great jumping-off point for active arts learning for K-12 students. Explore our art education resources in "Browse by Web Exhibitions" under: Arts Education, Artwork Lesson Plans, and Visual Arts Learning.
