ROCKLAND — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), 21 Winter St., hosts an adult “Magic Material” workshop Tuesday, Sept. 20, in-person from 3 to 6 p.m. where a variety of recycled materials will be used to create mixed media relief works. Inspired by upcoming installation “Ian Trask | Mind Loops,” made from reclaimed items, attendees will create active compositions from materials, encouraging reuse of materials. This workshop will be run similar to CMCA’s ArtLab for All program, focusing on experimentation and exploration of material.

The cost is $60 for non-members, $45 for CMCA members, and $40 for seniors. There must be a minimum of six registrants to run. Registration is required at

Instructor Tara 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.
