Meet the artist! Bring your friends to the MAM to hear from a professional artist, ask your burning questions about working in the arts, and get creative in an interactive workshop! This year, MAM is launching a new Teen Artist Talk & Workshop series. Dan Fenelon, whose signature “urban tribal” style is instantly recognizable on murals at the Montclair Library, Luna Stage in West Orange, and other public spaces throughout the country, trained at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Dan works in a range of media—acrylic on canvas, 3D printed figurines, and larger-than-life sculptures. He teaches students of all ages at schools across the country, including locally with MAM’s Art Truck and mobile studio. Dan will lead an interactive mask-making workshop following the artist talk. All art supplies—and snacks—will be provided.

 

Teachers are FREE with school groups. Email teens@montclairartmuseum.org to reserve your spot.
