The Common Thread
On the first Friday of the month, galleries, businesses, and community organizations in Fairbanks host art-based open houses. This week, my sister participated in an event at Thread, an early child care and education resource referral program serving Interior and Northern Alaska.
The open house featured several artists and provided materials for kids to make art at each station. It was a beautiful evening to inspire your inner artist.
My sister Ruth, of Ruth’s Rocks, helped kids paint their own rocks using acrylic markers.
Kids could design their own birch medallions.
Sheets of birch bark served as community canvases, with anyone, even the youngest guests, adding a touch of their own style.
Water color was also demonstrated.
Thread has a wonderful nature trail for kids and other activites to stimulate creativity.
Guests were entertained by a local duo.
Art is for everyone. Let your inner art free and discover your medium. Thanks, Thread for a fun evening.
