Family Art Days


Family Art Days

& Art Packs

With the San Juan Islands Museum of Art (SJIMA) scheduled to reopen, Family Art Days (FAD) will again offer onsite Saturday sessions in the orchard adjacent to the museum at 540 Spring Street.  Families now have the opportunity to join in the fun of the open air “studio.” In–person instruction will be provided by Lana Hickman and Alice Hibberd. All necessary safety precautions will be in place.  Please review our COVID Safety Procedures HERE.

During August, families pre-registered to pick up packets for each week’s at-home FAD. For those who prefer to work on art projects at home, the offerings will continue on Saturdays through September.

Family Art Days and Art Packs for Saturday, September 26th

The Land We Live On

Work on a shoreline or landscape diorama project. You could make a "window" to a beach scene, using some natural objects including an assortment of shells, pebbles, and small driftwood pieces, (provided by us), perhaps with the sea in the background (a picture made by you). Or if you prefer, create a landscape with moss and small plants, and add paper cut-outs or painted details.

Pick up supplies to do this project at home or join us in the orchard (weather permitting) or indoors in the museum (space limited, so register early).
No upcoming events at the moment
