Join us on Saturday, July 13th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm for a FREE family art workshop open to children, parents, grandparents and friends! This hands-on activity is part of the on-going educational Family Workshops at Cascadia Art Museum.
This workshop, led by Margie Morris, Tlingit Alaskan native, will include authentic drawing and painting on natural red cedar. Margie, now a local artist in Edmonds, will lead us through the process of preparing cedar as an art medium as well as drawing images of salmon onto the cedar. Margie has been creating art for over 30 years including form line design, elk hide drums, dance robes, tunics, beading, carving and weaving. During the workshop she will discuss the importance of salmon and cedar and other Tlingit arts and traditions.
While you are at Cascadia Art Museum, you can visit the current exhibits, Paintings from the Palouse: The Art of Andrew L. Hofmeister and Quiet Hour: The Photography of Yukio Morinaga, as well as stop by the museum’s gift and book shop filled with Pacific Northwest Native books and gifts.
