The Center for Maine Contemporary Art invites you to explore the expressive power of creating art using straight lines during our ArtLab for All Ages. Our virtual ArtLab will stream live on Facebook from 2 to 4 p.m Feb. 5 and will be led by CMCA’s community educator and Arts@Work mentor Alexis Iammarino.
Taking inspiration from works by painter Will Sears and textile artist Paolo Arao, on view in CMCA’s “Walk the Line” exhibit, participants will create both large and tiny geometric works on paper using a variety of drawing media and pre-sized colored papers that explore the descriptive possibilities of line, color, pattern and scale.
In addition to her position at CMCA, Iammarino is an interdisciplinary artist and educator, as well as the mural director of Arts in Action (a program of RSU13 Adult and Community Ed., with support from the Anonimo Foundation) and co-director of Interloc Projects, a multidisciplinary artspace located at Steel House South in Rockland. She moved to Maine in 2011, after receiving her MA in community arts from Maryland Institute College of Art and has been facilitating for ArtLab since 2015.
CMCA is located at 21 Winter St., Rockland. For more information, go to https://cmcanow.org.
