What happens to an artwork after it’s finished? Museums collect paintings, sculptures, films—and more—but visitors only see a fraction of the objects a museum holds. Gain some behind-the-scenes insight at the Frye Art Museum by working with an exhibition designer to curate and design an exhibit from the museum’s collection.


Our youth workshops encourage students ages 10-16 to tackle social, environmental, and engineering challenges. With an extended emphasis on more conceptual issues and demanding design concepts, these workshops are perfect for older students. Hosted at Seattle-area architectural offices and community spaces, SAF staff and volunteer designers support participants as they plan, build, and present solutions to imaginative and thought-provoking design challenges.

Please note: All workshops will require masks for all youth, adults, and staff (no matter vaccination status) for the entirety of the event. All those who are eligible for vaccination are required to be vaccinated to attend.

We offer full scholarships for all SAF Youth Programs. For scholarships, email Program Director, Marina Szende at
