Rockland, ME, November 27, 2020 — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites artists of all ages to take part in an ArtLab for All Ages workshop on Saturday, December 5, from 2 to 4pm. 

Participants will join ArtLab Educator Alexis Iammarino in creating mixed-media sculptures using air-dry clays and found objects. Taking inspiration from the work of artists Sam Finkelstein and Elyse Noelani Grams on view in the CMCA 2020 Biennial, participants will create small objects from memory while embracing the slower pace of working by hand. 

In response to colder temperatures and CDC recommendations, the workshop will stream live on, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. For those tuning in locally, there are 15 ArtLab art kits available for pick up at CMCA beginning Wednesday (12/2), free of charge. Participants are encouraged to explore the galleries during pick up or visit the virtual tour online at in advance of the workshop. For more information, email Alexis Iammarino at
