Family Art Days (FAD) at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art is a free, fun art education program intended to give children the opportunity to create a hands-on art project with an adult family member(s), adult friend, or mentor.
Each year SJIMA hosts 32 family art days and provides over 500 participants with free art materials and instruction to bring children and adults together around a creative project. You can read more on our website about the program.
SJIMA is raising money for Family Art Days as part of the San Juan Island Community Foundation’s 2023 County Fair Giving Campaign. All funds raised will go to provide materials and instruction. Through this program, the first $1,000 in donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Community Foundation.
To be eligible for matching funds, donations to SJIMA Family Art Days must be made during the four days of the 2023 County Fair – Aug. 16–19. Donors can contribute in person at the SJICF fair booth, online at www.sjicf.org/fair, by phone to SJICF at 360-378-1001, or by mailing a check payable to SJICF (dated between Aug. 16–19) with the San Juan Islands Museum of Art in the memo line to P.O. Box 1352, Friday Harbor, WA 98250. The Community Foundation will grant the raised funds to SJIMA following the County Fair.
At the San Juan Islands Museum of Art, we celebrate artists, creativity, community, and generosity through exhibits, education, and events. Located on beautiful San Juan Island in the Pacific Northwest, SJIMA connects islanders and visitors from around the world through powerful and timely museum exhibits and programming.
