Food, Glorious Food!

For the fall Family Art Days at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA), food inspires the art classes. Imagine waving fields of grain, cattle grazing in fields, printing with potatoes and eating your still life model!

Family Art Days are fun for the whole family, and everyone can leave with their work of art. Although donations to cover material costs are appreciated, the workshops are free.

Workshops are from noon to 4:00 pm at SJIMA located at 540 Spring Street, Friday Harbor. The instructors, Lana Hickman and Alice Hibberd are fully qualified art teachers.

The fall schedule follows. Mark your calendars.


  • 15th – A Color Study- in potato prints
  • 22nd – Landscape, still life and pattern in grains
  • 29th – Berries and mushrooms-explore natural dyes


  • 6th – Cows in Pasture in collages
