Sunday Studio: Upcycled Fabric Collage Totes with Kristian Battell

FREE with museum admission and for members, with advance registration required.

Join us each Sunday for a fun family art-making activity inspired by our current exhibitions. Explore materials, learn new techniques, and meet other community members while enjoying creative time with your family. Each week features a different project designed by MAM Teaching Artists to spark the imagination and encourage conversation in response to artworks on view in museum galleries. This program is aimed at families with children ages 5-12, but all are welcome.  

Inspired by the exhibition WOOLPUNK®: Sunflowers & Graffiti’d Sky in the Garden State, families this week will learn how to make usable art by upcycling fabric scraps into a one-of-a-kind collage to sew on a reusable tote bag.

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.
