Join us at Scandinavia House for an adult art workshop and tour of our current exhibition, Narrative Threads. Inspired by the work of featured artist Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson, workshop participants will create their own watercolor landscape. Guided by Icelandic teaching artist Melkorka Helgasdottir (also known as Korka), participants will use paint, oil pastels, rubbing alcohol, and more to explore various watercolor techniques in a relaxed atmosphere. All materials are provided.
