Today at 2:00 on Facebook LIVE!

April 4, 2020


Join The Center for Maine Contemporary Art’s educators Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino for a live stream, interactive workshop at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, April 4 on CMCA’s Facebook page. THAT’S TODAY!

April’s workshop takes inspiration from the vibrant and expressive work of the five contemporary painters featured in the exhibition, Skirting the Line: Painting between Abstraction and Representation. Workshop participants will learn techniques for creating 2-D and 3-D forms for landscapes, still lives, and figures.

Prep at home in advance for the workshop

Materials needed: 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. Raid the recycling bin for flattened cereal boxes, brown paper bags, cardboard scraps and interesting wrappers.

  • Get inspired by exploring the Skirting the Line exhibition through the virtual tour.
  • Clear an area for art making 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 prevent any inadvertent damage!
  • Gather a variety of objects around your house, pantry, and yard to create still lives and sculptural arrangements.
