Posted September 24, 2019 at 5:45 am by

Fam­i­lies of all ages can explore mak­ing art of, or with food! The San Juan Islands Muse­um of Art‘s (SJIMA) Fall Fam­i­ly Art Days begin Sat­ur­day, Sep­tem­ber 28, from noon to 5:00 pm, at 540 Spring Street. The class­es are upstairs on the sec­ond floor.

Chil­dren and their fam­i­ly mem­bers cre­ate enter­tain­ing and inter­est­ing projects that take inspi­ra­tion from the Food For Thought exhi­bi­tion at SJIMA. Kids get to leave with the take-home art they made.

Expe­ri­enced art instruc­tor Lana Hick­man pro­vides guid­ance, mate­ri­als and fas­ci­nat­ing new ideas. All are wel­come to enjoy this FREE oppor­tu­ni­ty for fun and creativity.

The sched­ule of class­es is as follows:

  • Sep­tem­ber 28 – Pat­terns in Edi­ble Flow­ers-Mul­ti-media collage.
  • Octo­ber 5 – Fish prints: scales and all! ‑Paint fish in tempera.
