“Art in the Making” – Extended for another month!

For the month of October the MAA continues to celebrate our 90 year history of art making by inviting EVERYONE to come and make art! Explore your creativity by contributing to several art installations/activities using a variety of materials that will evolve and grow throughout the month. Activities will include “Write the Words”, adding your message to the communal chalkboard;”All Knotted Up” – adding pieces of colorful fabric to create a gigantic textural masterpiece; “Create Together” – bring a friend and add to each other’s drawing. This completely interactive exhibit is great for ARTISTS AND NON-ARTISTS OF ALL ages and any skill level. Come and celebrate the artist in YOU!
