No class on Saturday, May 18 or Saturday, May 25

Connect the dots between art and community in our 8-week course designed for 6-8 year-olds. Inspired by our current exhibition Family, Community, Belonging, this class bridges diverse perspectives, fosters empathy, and provides a shared space for expression for kids of all backgrounds and experiences. In our studio, we celebrate the richness of mixed media, blending various artistic elements to create a tapestry of expression. By embracing this diverse approach, we encourage young artists to express their personal experiences with family, community, and belonging through artistic processes like collage, painting, sculpture, portraiture, and more!

This class will include a visit to MAM’s galleries during class time to learn from artists on view and be inspired.

Kristian Battell

Kristian Battell is an artist working and living in northern New Jersey, having recently completed her Masters of Fine Art at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. She always considered herself more of a traditional printmaker, having a BFA in Printmaking and Art of the Book from Purchase College, but the pandemic has shifted her practice to sculpture and installation. These sculptures focus on climate change and upcycling the materials that surround her in her everyday life. She loves bringing this practice to a wider audience, especially by teaching kids about our impact on the environment and the change we can make through art.
