Salmon Luminary Arts Project

In this STEAM project, you will learn to make a luminary globe representing some portion of the lifecycle of our wild Salmon.  You are invited to bring your artwork to the Annual Illuminight Winter Walk, a celebration of the Skagit River and the many beings that depend on it.  Go to the "More" page for More information.

This video (26:42) gives you instructions for how to make your luminary in 3 days.  Days 1 and 2 can be done on a single day, but the project needs to dry overnight before following the Day 3 instructions.  Use the chapter marks  to jump different parts of the videos.
