MAA is pleased to present four live art demonstrations during our Paint the Town Labor Day Show. All demos will take place at the Kensington Historic Armory and are free and open to the public. We plan to livestream them on the MAA page on Facebook (


Saturday, September 4 at 2:30pm
Jennifer Kahn Barlow
French macaron lovers wanted! Jen, an MAA member, will be demonstrating her process for painting vibrant French Macarons using oil paints. From the colorful base layer to the crumbly details, she will show the progression from plain shapes to tempting confectionary on canvas.

Sunday, September 5 at 1 pm
Ally Morgan
MAA member Ally will be demonstrating her mixed media approach to pet portraits. Working with a combination of colored pencils, markers and pens, she will take her audience through her techniques and tricks for creating a realistic dog portrait. More information will be available for Ally’s upcoming Pet Portrait workshops for those interested.

Sunday, September 5 at 2:30 pm
Marcie Wolf-Hubbard
Marcie will demonstrate and have supplies available for creating in drawing and Mixed Media. This will give an idea about being in her art classes (Encaustic, Mixed Media & Drawing.) Marcie will have information about her upcoming Encaustic in person workshop, sample art, and tools/materials used in her classes.

Monday, September 6 at 2:30 pm
Tom Semmes
Weather permitting, Tom will demonstrate plein air painting outside the Armory building. Tom has been painting since he was a teenager, inspired by seeing the woods and fields that surrounded his childhood home mirrored in the works of the Impressionists at local museums. Painting outdoors ("plein air") has always been part of his practice. His paintings highlight expressive brushstrokes, a pleasing color harmony and an almost tangible sense of light."

Thanks to MAA member Lis Zadravec for organizing these demos.
