Now, we’re excited to welcome you back to Studio Cascadia!

Studio Cascadia is a learning studio for people of all ages. Join professional and teaching artist Mona Fairbanks as she guides us through hands-on art projects using common materials that can easily be found at home. These projects will help us build our own artistic skills and learn about the seven elements of art. The elements of art are the building blocks that all visual artists use to create their works.

Today we are exploring texture, one of the seven elements of art. Let’s get started with this art project!

Visit Studio Cascadia on our website to learn more about the elements of art and to download free instruction sheets for other great art projects.

We’ve also created a blog where you can find all of the Studio Cascadia projects, Virtual Visit videos, and Art Exploration activities online. Check them all out here, and take a look at this week’s article in The Daily Herald about our coloring pages project. Thank you to everyone who has dropped off your creations so far – we are proud to showcase your colorful scenes in our Museum Store windows!

We hope you enjoy this art project and exploring your creative side this weekend. As always, stay healthy and thank you for being part of our Cascadia community.
