Join us for an introduction to Romanian embroidery through some of the beautiful examples in Maryhill Museum of Art's collection.  This child-friendly event will help you begin to identify some simple Romanian patterns and show you how to make your own patterns using graph paper and colored pencils.

We will review basic stitches, such as the running stitch, back stitch, cross stitch, bullion stitch, and satin stitch. (If you’d like to try them, have a hoop, material, and needle and thread already loaded.) 

Cost: FREE; advance registration required. Presented in collaboration with the American Romanian Cultural Society. 

SUMMER ART INSTITUTE: (on-site program)
July 19 - 23, 2021 | 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily
Our sense of self and identity is often revealed through intentional and unintentional choices, such as the clothes and hairstyles we wear, and the activities we take part in. Join us as we explore, through the arts, how cultural identity can help us better understand ourselves and others. Through reading, discussion, making art and the analysis of art, we will develop a deeper understanding of cultural identity and diversity, and how to teach our students about the multicultural landscape that surrounds us all.

The Institute is led by Maryhill Museum of Art's executive director, Colleen Schafroth, with guest presenters throughout the week. Extracurricular activities can include visits to artist’s studios and regional institutions.

Cost: $215 Maryhill Museum of Art members / $230 non-members; advance registration required.  

Three hours of credit are available through Antioch University Seattle. Continuing Education Clock hours Professional hours are available.  Scholarship(s) are available through the Janet P. Swartz and Harriet G. Langfeldt Summer Art Institute Scholarship Fund. To learn more or apply, please contact
