Free Family and Educator Day Celebrating the Arts

Celebrate the beginning of the school year with The Sky's the Limit: Family and Educator Day at the Frye Art Museum on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Get kids of all ages engaged in art-making activities, live music and a movie focused on themes of conservation and community. This free event culminates in a tree planting ceremony.

Tour the Frye Art galleries, dance to live music by the Brian Waite Band, take part in craft and art-making activities, enjoy storytelling hour and contribute to a time capsule that will be buried when Seattle artist Buster Simpson and students from Sammamish High School plant a tree at the Frye. Educators will receive take-home lesson plans and should RSVP by Sept. 16 to (clock hours are available through Seattle Pacific University).

Work on creative and fun arts activities and learn how to help foster a community where teachers and parents work together to enrich children through the arts. The Frye Art Museum is located at 704 Terry Ave. in Seattle. For the full line-up of activities for the day, visit
