Travel Art Workshop with Molly Hashimoto

Travel Art Workshop with Molly Hashimoto

Join Molly Hashimoto for a discussion of travel, art, and her new book "Birds of the West: An Artist's Guide."
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers event.

Learn how artists use watercolor sketchbooks to record their travel encounters with landscapes, people and wildlife. We'll try out their methods with pen, pencil and watercolor on artist quality watercolor papers. Molly will also share her own travel journals, including records of her visits to Europe and the American West.

For ages 8-11. Sponsored by FOLK, Friends of the Library of Kirkland.

About the book:

In Birds of the West, award-winning artist Molly Hashimoto captures nearly 100 Western bird species across seven habitats using different media, from quick ink sketches to vivid block prints. From the diminutive ruby-crowned kinglet to the majestic golden eagle, Molly’s range of art and detail encourages all of us, whether artists or not, to observe our feathered friends more closely.
