ROCKLAND – The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St., is offering a weeklong after-school workshop for students in grades 5 through 8 in which they will create free-standing sculptures made from unconventional and recycled materials.

Inspired by the dialogue and interplay between works featured in the “Spatial Relations” exhibit, participants in the “Three Dimensional Conversation with Tara Morin” ArtLab Intensive will work both independently and collaboratively to create three-dimensional artworks. The studio work will emphasize both individual process and collective problem-solving.

This ArtLab Intensive will be held in-person after school Monday through Thursday starting Jan. 3 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The cost of registration is $85. Each registration also includes free admission for a +1 friend. Registrations can be made online by Jan. 3 to attend.

Morin is an educator and artist living in Rockland. She defines her work as collecting and configuring shape and color, often integrating the “detritus of daily life” into her work. She uses found materials to create visually complex images and objects, arranging and rearranging to produce painting, drawing, collage and sculpture. Her aim is to reimagine the found material as something both familiar and foreign.
