The Spokane Art School (SAS) is committed to fostering diverse, equitable, and intentional inclusivity in all aspects of our work to fulfill our mission, “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.
