Family Art Days

Children and families create fun-tastic works with local artists at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art. Family Arts Days are a summertime island tradition, where local artists teach island crafts in a fresh outdoor setting.

Materials will be provided for captivating, hands-on projects, resulting in colorful creations to take home.  Many of the projects relate to the current Conversations with Gee’s Bend exhibition at SJIMA throughout the summer.  The classes are free; however, donations are appreciated.
