Roll up your sleeves for some hands-on learning as the Washington County Museum’s Free Family Mornings series continues! The March event is an illustration workshop by artist Anke Gladnick, creator of the mural for Washington County Museum’s current exhibit AgriCulture: Shaping Land and Lives in the Tualatin Valley. For the museum exhibit Gladnick drew many people and agricultural technologies together into one illustrated history. For the workshop they will lead you through the process of imagining and drawing a mural layout that tells your own story! Gladnick hopes that families will leave understanding that “illustration can be used as a way to learn and connect ourselves with the world around us while being personal and meaningful to the individual creating.” Materials are provided for this drop-in, all-ages workshop.
