The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) kicks off its fall ARTLab season with “Still Lives on the Wild Side // Funky Forms and Figures.” Bring your family or come on your own to the Rockland Recreation Center’s Tower Room on Saturday, November 7 from 2 to 4 p.m. Children, adults, and families are welcome to explore the arts first-hand. The program is free of charge.

Participants will experiment with a variety of fabrics, papers, and art mediums as we create our own still life, focussing on the current shift in seasons. Using our imaginations to “sculpt” with our bodies, we’ll transform our ideas into two dimensions. In the process we’ll become familiar with figure, form, and color

ARTLab is led by interdisciplinary artist/educator Alexis Iammarino. Alexis received her Masters in Community Art from Maryland Institute College of Art and is the Lead Artist for CMCA’s LEAPS of IMAGINATION. She teaches in RSU #13’s RASA program, is the Creative Arts Coordinator for Camden’s Wayfinder School, and is an educator and member of Steel House. Having collaborated on 5 large-scale public murals, Alexis completed her most recent one last summer on Oak Street in Rockland.

CMCA is delighted to partner with the Rockland Rec Center for its ARTLab programs. Mark your calendars for future ARTLabs for ALL Ages. They will take place on December 5, January 9, and February 6 in Rockland. For more information, e-mail jthompson@cmcanow.org
