Looking for a fun class this Wintry season? Look no further! We’ll be presenting Snowflake Flurry, a children’s workshop free to children, parents, grandparents on Saturday, December 1! Celebrate the holidays by making snowflake cards and learning about science and art at the same time.
On a drop-in basis, children will work with Mona Fairbanks, celebrated artist and educator, to create unique holiday snowflakes. All materials will be provided. “It might be cold outside,” Mona said, “but inside we are creating snowflake cards based on the scientific structure of water. Yes, that’s right, snowflakes are hexagons made from water molecules. We will start with structure and learn how to finesse our flakes into art that can be used for a single greeting card or taken and reproduced into a blizzard of cards ready to send out to family and friends. Easily accomplished by children 7 and up.”
In addition to learning about and making snowflake cards, children and families will also enjoy the Vintage Christmas Cards by Northwest Artists, 1909 – 1990 exhibit at Cascadia Art Museum featuring handmade cards from the past. The museum gift store will also be filled with unique holiday displays and gifts.
