Finding Art While Walking with Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park


Space is limited; reserve your spot now! Visit the Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park Website to Register! 

Join Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park as we learn how to find art while walking…even if you don’t think you’re an artist!

Led by local fiber artist and author Janice King, this easy walk will explore both natural and man-made elements for art images. You will see familiar things in new ways and make new discoveries that will increase your enjoyment of any nature walk.

Suitable for adults and children age 10 and older. No experience required; just bring your curiosity. Capture interesting visuals with your phone camera or a quick sketch (limited sketching supplies available). We won’t have time to finish any art, but a group show and share of inspirations at the walk’s end will help everyone see the range of artistic possibilities.

Walk leader Janice King is a fiber artist whose work focuses on the natural elements of the Pacific Northwest, especially our native trees. She is also author of the local guidebook Eastside Seattle Walks, which covers easy walking routes in each Eastside community that feature nature, history and public art.

This event is hosted by Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park.
