Room 101

Instructor: Amanda Crowe

Now offering this NEW one-time workshop in-person! Inspired by the cities in the exhibit "Continued Continuing: Paintings by Amy Casey." The setting of this world is a lone tower, overlooking a vast island covered with a canopy of treetops, that stretches to the sea. As the only known inhabitant on this island, you must ask yourself what the future world looks like? Will there be a balance of landscape and industry? Will we eventually run out of shared, safe spaces? Sculpt a small scale model of an imaginary, unfinished world using building materials and found objects. Escape reality and create your own island rules under the protection of a glass dome.

*Cost includes all supplies.

*At this time, CMA no longer requires students and instructors to wear a face mask inside the building. (Mask policies subject to change based on CDC guidelines)

Now offering this NEW Art Play Date in-person! Parents, come join your little artists in multisensory art making activity stations for both of you to enjoy together. Learn to interact creatively with your little one while helping your child get started in the world of art. Did you know that playing with colors actually boosts language skills in young children? Learning to identify and describe colors improves a child's ability to communicate and express themselves while also strengthening math skills through sorting, categorizing and comparing. Our sensory play dates are developed to stimulate your toddler's sense of touch, smell, sight, hearing, and balance while encouraging creativity and exploration in a safe environment. Ok-to-get-messy attire suggested; aprons provided.

*Cost includes all supplies for both one child and one adult to do together.

COVID UPDATE:
*At this time, CMA no longer requires students and instructors to wear a face mask inside the building. (Mask policies subject to change based on CDC guidelines)

1 Wednesday, 05:30 PM-07:30 PM

Room 101

Instructor: Amanda Crowe

Now offering this NEW one-time workshop in-person! Inspired by the architectural cities in the exhibit "Continued Continuing: Paintings by Amy Casey." If you're a fan of Minecraft, you already understand the concept of No Gravity ghost blocks and if you're into Fortnite, you get the seriousness of designing a sturdy structure, but this type of building strategy involves floating ink, buildings suspended in time, and miniature architectural materials (did someone say End Stone bricks?). This non-traditional paint-and-build class focuses on experimenting with the process of ink flow to create a backdrop for an imaginary city and its secret inhabitants.

*Cost includes all supplies.
