Spokane Art School Accepting Applications for 2024 Gallery Schedule

The Spokane Art School is a non-profit arts institution established in 1968. Our mission is to teach Spokane to make and enjoy art.

Visual artists from Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho will be considered.

Spokane Art School (SAS) is committed to fostering diverse, equitable, and intentional inclusivity in all aspects of our work to fulfill our mission of teaching Spokane to make and enjoy art. We start from the assumption that everyone belongs and that we all benefit most when we learn from and with each other. The school creates opportunities for each person to explore their own beliefs, values, and cultures so that, as a community, we can fully embrace the experience, ideas, perspectives, and traditions of all who come to learn and create here. We collaborate to make a space where persons from all identities, backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences are embraced, validated, and supported.

Artist-in-Residence Program | Spokane Art School

The SAS Artist-In-Residence Program will provide up to six months of free studio space in our facility at 503 East 2nd Ave., Suite B in Spokane, paid teaching opportunities during that time (provided enough students show interest in the class to make it economically feasible), and a gallery exhibit at the close of the residency, all in the interest of encouraging regional artists to explore their talents in new and creative ways.
