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. For this session, each participant will create prints using foam. Kids can choose to scratch the foam to create a design, or attach the foam shapes to a base to create a design.

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.
