Choose from 2 formats:

1. Individual Make N Take Projects

These projects stand alone although they can be displayed for a time collectively they are each in and of themselves a piece of art.  Individuals take their project home upon completion or after the “exhibit” is over. 

2. Large Group projects or Installations

These projects are done by individuals with the purpose of creating one large community art project like a Mural or installation.  These are more in depth and require collaboration and we are happy to brainstorm together on what you might envision that to be.

WHERE DO WE OFFER ARTIST IN RESIDENCE?
  • Your place – We can come to you. Your business, community center, school, auditorium, block party, or place of worship
  • At Maxtivity – Take a field trip to the studio.
