The Center for Maine Contemporary Art will host its Adult Workshop: Magic Material in-person from 3 to 6 p.m. Sept. 20.

Participants will use a variety of recycled materials to create mixed-media relief works. Inspired by upcoming installation “Ian Trask: Mind Loops,” made from reclaimed items, guests will create active compositions from materials, encouraging reuse of materials. This workshop will be run similar to the ArtLab for All program, which focuses on experimentation and exploration of material.

Tara Morin, the facilitator, is an educator and artist living in Rockland. She defines her work as collecting and configuring shape and color, often integrating the “detritus of daily life” into her work. She uses found materials to create visually complex images and objects, arranging and rearranging to produce painting, drawing, collage and sculpture. Her aim is to reimagine the found material as something both familiar and foreign.

Registration is required. Tickets are $60 for nonmembers, $45 for CMCA members and $40 for seniors.
