Join us for family-friendly virtual art workshops to create three-dimensional dragonflies! We hope you’ll make a dragonfly to contribute to the community art piece at Blakely Hall, as well as one for yourself! Workshops are free thanks to Swedish Issaquah and the Issaquah Arts Commission.

Workshop 1: Make a Dragonfly Using Recycled Materials

On January 16, make beautiful dragonflies out of recycled materials with Issaquah Highlands resident and eco-artist, Aline Bloch! Gather your supplies in advance (download supply list), then join the Zoom call to make a dragonfly step-by-step.  All ages are welcome, although children will need assistance.

Drop your dragonfly in the bin outside Blakely Hall by January 31 to be a part of this inspiring community art project!
