With a little shift in the schedule for our Northwest snow storm, please join us for a creative Children’s Valentine Workshop on Saturday, February 16th, from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm at Cascadia Art Museum! This free event, “Valendoodles”, will feature a special valentine art activity that will send happiness and goodwill for Valentine’s Day and beyond. On a drop-in basis, children and their parents, grandparents or friends will learn about drawing unique patterns to embellish traditional valentine designs and either color them at the workshop or later. The art creations can be used as either cards or wall hangings. The workshop will be led by Mona Fairbanks, celebrated artist and educator, who noted, “Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be only one day a year. Taking the time to create elaborate Valendoodles for a loved one to color at their leisure makes for double the pleasure!”
In addition to creating take-home Valendoodles, children and their families and friends can also view the current museum exhibit, Painters of the Northwest: Impressionism to Modernism, 1900-1940, a visual introduction to the history and art of the Northwest. The Museum Store will also be filled with unique books, puzzles and art supplies. For more information call 425-336-4809.
