Education can happen anywhere—strengthening a student's understanding and comprehension. Thanks to partner organizations, Tacoma students can experience the connection between educational content learned in the classrooms and museum exhibitions. A new partnership gives all Tacoma Public Schools high school students free access to the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM) and the Museum of Glass (MOG) to provide them with greater access and exposure to the arts. Through a collaborative approach, the organizations worked together to reduce barriers and enhance in- and out-of-school time experiences for students. Students gain access with their Student ID cards. "We're so excited at the Tacoma Art Museum to offer high school students free access to our museum," said Samantha Kelly, Director of Education and Community Engagement. "Through art, we have an opportunity to share a new lens on culture within and beyond our community." Since the opening of Tacoma's School of the Arts (SOTA) in 2001, Tacoma Public Schools, TAM, and MOG have worked together to broaden the scope of learning in the arts for public school students. This new partnership advances SOTA's connection with the Youth Connect programs, which trains students to teach art lessons in elementary schools, and provides a liaison between SOTA and the museums. "We're thrilled for Tacoma students as they explore and connect in the museum spaces," said J. Andrew Henley, PhD, curator of education and community engagement. "Their interaction with art brings life to the mission of our museums, and at MOG, brings glass to their lives.” Although this new partnership only allows free entry for high school students, both museums offer a variety of free events and activities for all Tacoma families to enjoy:
