ArtLab Vacation Week Video Series
Monday – Thursday, February 15-18
Free and open to all
Harnessing our Creative Spirits with Play!
Artists of all ages are invited to join ArtLab educators Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino for fun, hands-on projects you can try at home! Taking inspiration from the abundant and inspired ways of creating presented in the 2020 CMCA Biennial, the video workshops will explore exciting and varied approaches to artmaking. Looking to Biennial Artists Tom Jessen and Fanny Brodar, participants are invited to embrace the parallels between the process of making art and the excitement and structure of playing games.
To spark your imaginations and get you started each day!
Video activities with instructional prompts will be posted to this page and facebook.com/cmcanow by 10:30 am daily.
Each afternoon at 3:30pm you’re invited to join Alexis and Mia for a virtual show ‘n tell via Zoom! To participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom Link and Password. You’ll receive how-to’s on sharing photos of your process and finished projects. We want to see what you make!
For local participants, complimentary ArtKits are available for pick up at CMCA on Wednesday, February 10 through Saturday February 13, 11am -3pm.
A few preparations to make in advance:
- Get inspired by listening to the audio guide and exploring the CMCA 2020 Biennial virtual tour
- Set aside Objects: 1) toys, balls, blocks, board games, stuffed animals, action figures, and any brightly patterned clothing you may have 2) kitchen or office supplies like forks, spoons, pencils, pens or clips and paperclips.
- Gather materials: an assortment of mark-making tools such as paints and brushes, pens, pencils, markers, crayons, chalks or pastels – the more the merrier! You’ll also need scissors and some heavy paper, cardboard and/or small canvas boards to work on. Tape and household glue are good to have on hand.
- Clear an area for art-making at your kitchen table or on the floor in a space where you and others have room to create; be sure to cover the area with newspaper, an old towel or tablecloth, or other protective covering to shield your work area if needed.
