The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites artists of all ages to investigate animal portraiture! Join the fun on Saturday, April 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the CMCA’s South End location at 218 Main Street, Rockland. “For the Love of Beasts” will give animal enthusiasts a chance to design and create an original masterpiece.
Choose your subject – your family pet or an animal you feel passionate about. Learn how to plan and paint a stunning portrait of an animal near and dear to your heart.
Portraits are not just about people! Bring a photo of your own pet(s) if you can or choose from a variety of photo references, including dream pets like dragons, flying worms, amoebas on a leash, and more! Come with your family or on your own to “For the Love of Beasts.” ArtLab welcomes children, adults, and families and is free of charge and open to all.
CMCA’s Saturday afternoon ArtLabs are led by interdisciplinary artist/educator Alexis Immarino. Alexis received her Masters in Community Art from Maryland Institute College of Art and is Lead Artist for CMCA’s Leaps of Imagination in-school program.
ArtLab is supported in part by the Milton and Sally Avery Art Foundation, the Bob Crewe Foundation, Camden National Bank, and individual donors. For more information, visit http://cmcanow.org/
