Family Art Workshops

Make A Nature Mother’s Day Card with Mona! | Virtual Family Art Workshop

Saturday, May 7th, 11am – 12pm – Virtual Event

Be inspired to say thank you to mom with a fun bird card using unusual materials. In celebrating Mother’s Day this year, our teaching artist, Mona Fairbanks, will lead us in making a Mother’s Day card using old technology in a new way. Bird photos will be supplied along with card and envelope, but you are welcome to find some bird pictures on your own.

Mona Fairbanks is a Northwest Native making monotype prints, acrylic canvases, and most anything that can pose an artistic challenge. Inspired by Puget Sound, the rushing waters and the fragrant Douglas Firs, her work reflects patterns, colors and endangered species.
