A free family art workshop led by Tlingit artist Margie Morris is set for Saturday, July 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Cascadia Art Museum, 190 Sunset in Edmonds.
The workshop is open to children, parents, grandparents and friends. This hands-on activity is part of the on-going educational family workshops at Cascadia Art Museum.
Morris, who grew up in Alaska, will teach attendees how to draw and paint on natural red cedar. Now a local artist in Edmonds, Morris will lead participants through the process of preparing cedar as an art medium as well as drawing images of salmon onto the cedar.
Morris 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.
