Meetings & Events

Member Meetings

MAA invites members and prospective members to our monthly meetings held in the Hirsh Studio classroom at Artists & Makers Studios 2 , 12276 Wilkins Ave. in Rockville, Md. See the Calendar for dates.

The first part is reserved for socializing and networking, with the program usually beginning around 7 pm. Most meetings end by 8:30 pm. We invite all attendees to bring food or drinks to share.

Directions:  Artists & Makers 2 is in a small warehouse complex in Rockville. The building is marked “Artists & Makers” (though it can be hard to see the signage at night). Upon arrival at 12276 Wilkins Ave., pull into the driveway and drive around to the back of the building, where there is a spacious, free parking lot. You’ll see a brightly lit entrance with a glass door; enter through that door and go up the stairs. Follow signage for the Hirsh Studio Classroom.

For those who prefer to use the elevator, go through the brightly lit glass door, proceed past the stairwell, and turn right into the open gallery space.  Go through the door into the back gallery, and you’ll see the elevator at the back right side of the room. At the elevator, hold the black button with the “I” on it to call the elevator to the gallery space, holding it down until it arrives.  In the elevator, hold the black button inside with “II” on it until it arrives at the upstairs floor. Our meeting space is to the right.

Community events

MAA members participate in a number of events in the community each year. This includes the Wheaton Arts Festival, the Kensington Day of the Book Festival, Kensington-Wheaton business networking gatherings, and more.

Is there a community event you’d like MAA to be a part of? Contact us–we’d love to hear from you!
