Rockland, Maine, May 24, 2016 —The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites artists of all ages to stretch their imaginations and flex their creative muscles while representing the human form for June’s ArtLab, “Warp, Distort, Repeat!” Participants will use a variety of materials including discarded CDs and Silly Putty. Everyone will have a blast manipulating images and copying and repeating faces and forms. Join in the exploration!

Bring your friends, your family, or come on your own on Saturday, June 4, from 2-4 pm at the Rockland Recreation Center’s Tower Room at 44 Limerock Street. ArtLab welcomes children, teens, adults, and families, and is free of charge and open to all. Starting in July, all ArtLabs will be held at CMCA’s new building at 21 Winter Street, Rockland.

CMCA’s Saturday afternoon ArtLabs are led by interdisciplinary artist/educator Alexis Iammarino. Alexis received her Masters in Community Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and is Lead Artist for CMCA’s Leaps of Imagination in-school program.

ArtLab is supported in part by the Milton and Sally Avery Art Foundation, the Bob Crewe Foundation, Camden National Bank, and individual donors.
