Rockland, ME, March 27, 2020 — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland will host its monthly ArtLab for All Ages workshops via Facebook Live throughout the period its doors are closed to the public in response to CDC guidelines on COVID-19.
To encourage creativity and connection during this time of social distancing, artists
of all ages are invited to join ArtLab instructors Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino for the first ArtLab Facebook Live stream workshop on Saturday, April 4, from 2 to 4pm at facebook.com/cmcanow.
Taking inspiration from the vibrant and expressive work of the five contemporary painters featured in the exhibition, Skirting the Line: Painting between Abstraction and Representation, participants will learn techniques for creating 2-D and 3-D forms for landscapes, still lives, and figures. In advance of the workshop, participants are encouraged to explore the Skirting the Line exhibition through the virtual tour available on CMCA’s website, cmcanow.org. A list of materials to be used in the workshop will be posted to CMCA’s Facebook page and website.
