The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St., invites artists of all ages to create soft mixed media sculptures and wearable artworks during March's ArtLab for All Ages on Saturday, March 2, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Drawing inspiration from the work of CMCA Biennial artist Baxter Koziol, participants will craft small soft sculptures and mini wearable artworks such crowns, masks, buttons or brooches. The project will borrow from the aesthetics of toys, comics, cartoons and action figures to construct personally symbolic and expressive small objects from felt, fabric, and mixed media. Participants are advised to bring old T-shirts to use as sewing material.

Led by instructor Alexis Iammarino, ArtLab for All Ages takes place on the first Saturday of every month at CMCA and is always free and open to all. Support for ArtLab is provided in part by the Cricket Foundation, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust, Nellie L. Taft Foundation and individual donors.

CMCA is a contemporary arts institution presenting year-round exhibitions, engaging events, and educational programs for all ages. The galleries are currently closed for repair, but ArtLab remains free and open to the public during events. The galleries will re-open March 23.
