On Saturday, May 2, from 2 to 3pm, artists of all ages are invited to join ArtLab educators Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino for the second livestream workshop at facebook.com/cmcanow. Following the workshop, participants are encouraged to share their work in a community show ‘n tell via Zoom at 3:45pm. Please email Mia Bogyo at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
May’s workshop takes its theme from the work of artist and poet Erin Dorney, whose video poem series, Question the Body may be viewed in advance of the workshop at www.cmcanow.org. Taking inspiration from Dorney’s assemblages of words and found materials, participants will make their own altered and collaged narrative images. A list of materials to be used in the workshop will be posted to CMCA’s Facebook page and website.
