The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites artists of all ages to join ArtLab educators Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino for fun, hands-on projects you can try at home as part of ArtLab February Vacation Week.

Taking inspiration from the 2020 CMCA Biennial, the video workshops will explore exciting and varied approaches to artmaking. Looking to Biennial Artists Tom Jessen and Fanny Brodar, participants are invited to embrace the parallels between the process of making art and the excitement and structure of playing games.

New videos of fun, hands-on activities will be posted to and during February Vacation Week, Feb. 15 through 18, by 10:30 a.m. Participants are invited to engage in real time or revisit the videos at their convenience. A list of materials to be used in the workshops will be made available in advance on CMCA's website and Facebook page. Each afternoon at 3:30 p.m., join Alexis and Mia for a live streamed show and tell via Zoom. To participate, email for the Zoom Link and Password.

For local participants, complimentary ArtKits are available for pick up at CMCA on Wednesday, Feb. 10, through Saturday, Feb. 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

ArtLab Vacation Week is made possible by the support of Wells Fargo, Margaret E. Burnham Trust, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust, and individual donors.
