About the Instructor:

Maria Galens lives near Penn Yan, NY with her husband, two children, cats and chickens! She received a B.F.A in Painting from Pratt Institute in 2008 and went to receive a M.S.Ed in Art Education K-12 from Nazareth College in 2011. Maria is a mixed media artist and loves to paint, make dolls and knit and crochet.

Maria believes there are no wrong answers when making art and encourages student artists to take risks and experiment - she loves the energy that children bring to the art-making table!

A youth workshop series offered quarterly for kids ages 5 and up taught by Maria Galens. During our Art Saturdays sessions, young artists will complete one project each Saturday. Children will learn various art techniques including painting, drawing, and printmaking, collage, mixed media, and sculpture. Sign your child up for one session, or take them all!

Please sign up by 5pm the Friday before your class (the day before). Minimum of 2 participants to run each class.

Regarding Masks: As of March 18, 2022 Main Street Arts will not be enforcing masks in workshops. Parents and guardians may decide what is best for each family. If you would like your child to continue masking, we encourage you to have them do so. If your child is feeling sick, please keep them home and we will do our best to reschedule them on another week or issue you a refund.
