The Creative Advantage?
We want

Our young people to have

the tools to express themselves and their ideas, and creative outlets to share their viewpoints with the world.

Our city to be filled with

creative and critical thinkers. Thinkers who can collaborate to solve problems and are engaged in their communities.

Arts education teaches all of these skills

Learning through the arts is a vital part of a well-rounded
education and leads to well-rounded, communicative, and adaptable
residents in the Seattle community.

Needs The Creative Advantage?


A basic education inclusive of the arts is

mandatory in Washington State,

but many schools are not able to provide the necessary class time.

\ -




The result is that while there are award-winning programs in some Seattle Public Schools,

many students do not have consistent access to the arts

as they move through their school careers.


The Creative Advantage has launched in the Central Pathway, which includes all schools in the Washington Middle School area. The program will

broaden its reach into the city

in the next several years.

Is The Creative Advantage
changing arts education in Seattle?


Covering school hallways with art
Kindergarteners singing in harmony
Encouraging students to be creative in all parts of their lives
Providing resources for the next generation of artists
Students expressing themselves in new ways
Broadening student experience

We want
our young people
to be successful



The Creative Advantage is a public-private partnership to reinvest in Seattle’s students and our community’s economic and creative future. Founding partners are the City of Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture, Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Foundation.
The End

We want
all students to receive
quality arts education.
