What happens when you ask alumni and students how SOTA, SAMI, and IDEA have challenged their thinking?
They mention a myriad of transformative experiences- internships, senior projects, service and study tours, in-class projects, and navigating the streets of downtown Tacoma and the trails of Pt. Defiance Park. They mention the many forms that thinking might take- creative thinking, problem solving, critical thinking, introspection, mindfulness. But mostly they talk about the kind of internal transformation that occurs when you participate in an innovative educational community. They tell you how attending SOTA, SAMI, or IDEA allowed them to pursue their dreams, connect more effectively with others, engage their creativity, and find rest. Two of the stories are below, the rest will be featured throughout the spring as part of Artrageous 2017.
This year, we are celebrating Thinking at Artrageous, our annual auction, on April 29 at 5pm at Hotel Murano. It’s a time to get together, celebrate what we’ve accomplished as a community, and renew our commitment for the coming year. There are four ways you can participate in this year’s event:
Buy tickets or host a table

Thank you for your continued support of innovative education in our community.
