ROCKLAND – In support of the Maine Arts Education Association (MAEA), CMCA is offering a full-day hands-on professional workshop for Maine educators exploring the 2021 fall exhibits on Saturday, Dec. 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $50 for CMCA or MAEA members, who are invited to register for “Contemporary Art in Context” by Dec. 10.

CMCA education staff will guide participants through a variety of art making activities and interactive ideas for incorporating contemporary art into the classroom, both in-person and online. Organizers and participants will talk about themes, dialogues, and curiosities as they make their way through the four exhibits now on display. The day will also include tours of CMCA’s current exhibitions led by its curators. This one-day workshop is an opportunity to come together as a community of artists, educators and contemporaries.

Registration is now open at cmcanow.org. The registration deadline is Dec. 10.

To keep the community safe, all attendees will be required to wear a mask while indoors.
