In celebration of Cascadia Art Museum’s exhibition ‘Vintage Christmas Cards of the Northwest,’ the museum is offering a card-making workshop Saturday.
Family Card Making Event, Sat. (Dec. 5) from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. with Mona Fairbanks and April Richardson: Edmonds artist Mona Fairbanks provided a preview of this family-friendly workshop: “Come be inspired by the beautiful card exhibit going on just outside the museum’s studio workroom. To help you make cards, artist April Richardson and I will be using natural materials like leaves and plants from the neighborhood, along with her portable printing press. We also have foam stamps and ink available, and we are setup to make about 80 cards on Saturday.” Free with paid admission. Drop-ins are welcome.
Mona Fairbanks also wants folks know to that she will be taking two fifth grade classes from Chase Lake Elementary School on a tour of the museum on Friday, Dec. 4. “This is part of an Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation Grant that also includes four art lessons in the class. The first will be inspired by Maria Frank Abrams, one of the artists in the current show celebrating the first 75 years of the Northwest Watercolor Society.”
