PMA Family Day: Making Together

March is Youth Art Month! Youth Art Month is a national celebration that recognizes art as a necessity for the full development of a better quality of life for all. This year marks the PMA's 23rd annual collaboration with the Maine Art Education Association and features close to 100 artworks by elementary, middle, and high school artists in Maine. We invite families to gain inspiration from the exhibition and join us for a Pop-Up Studio to create unique works of art. We provide an array of drawing, collage, and sculptural materials.
