About The Event

Every third Saturday of each month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session provides the opportunity to engage and interact with a different Northeast Ohio maker during pop-up demonstrations and activities. See their work unfold and learn how artists create. Explore a related selection of authentic objects from the CMA’s education art collection in a pop-up Art Up Close session. See, think, and wonder.    

This month, join us for an immersive experience with illustrator and multimedia artist Angela Joy Oster. Angela’s work delves into narrative, humor, and character-driven visions, exploring themes of human frailty and the quest for immortality with a touch of whimsicality.

In this program, Angela leads a collaborative drawing session, inviting visitors to contribute their own interpretations of supernatural beings inspired by the exhibition Demons, Ghosts, and Goblins in Chinese Art. Dive into Angela’s imaginative world and unleash your creativity as you add your personal touch to this enchanting group drawing.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage with Angela’s thought-provoking art and participate in a collaborative art-making process that bridges cultures and inspires originality.
