Make a gift to help keep Atlanta Contemporary free, safe, and open to all.
Past Event March 26, 2023 / 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Join us in welcoming artist Makiko Maekawa for another family friendly Contemporary Kids program. Makiko will be teaching kids how they can use a variety of objects, paint, and paper to create contemporary works of art.
This is a drop-in event. Doors open at 12pm and visitors may begin the project any time until 2pm. Most visitors complete their artwork in 30-45 minutes and are invited to view the exhibitions before they leave. Contemporary kids is open to all ages.
Parking is free in the lot at Bankhead & Means Street (Google Maps Location). You can access the lot via Bankhead Avenue and proceed past the parking attendant booth.
Due to street closures from the Publix Marathon, Atlanta Contemporary will be closed for the previously scheduled Contemporary Kids on 2/26.
Makiko believes kids have magical power in creativity and imagination. She is originally from Japan and studied photography in Baltimore, MD. As a child she learned that art is universal language that allows kids express their power. She currently lives in Atlanta and creates art in mixed media including photographic images.
