Modern Makers Mission
Attract people to new and surprising experiences in unexpected environments and spaces
Bring residents and business owners together to cultivate a common bond through the arts
Create memorable experiences that engage the senses: taste, touch, smell, sound and sight
Innovation is the foundation for our programming. From food to fashion, art to design, dancing to drawing, we engage and delight the senses in new and dynamic ways each month. Our participants are always surprised by cutting edge themes for each event.
Modern Makers offers unique monthly interactive events that engage multigenerational members, from children and adults. Participants MAKE something together, LEARN a skill and help to build community around shared learning experiences. We EXHIBIT work from local artists, designers and children, and LEAD large scale art projects that require a team effort. This empowers children and professionals to GROW together. The overlap of families, students and ‘creatives’ forms the foundation for meaningful and memorable experiences.
This programming year, we would like our drawing nights to have more attendees and build on different themes of drawing as research, while engaging the wider community. From drawing animals at the zoo, drawing CCM/ Cincinnati Ballet dancers movement, to full-scale drawing with your own moving body, we encourage people to explore drawing in many formats. Additionally we would like to offer instructional drawing workshops in pastel, watercolor and comic book storyboarding.
Goals for our monthly Modern Makers event include a wider attendance rating, providing art making supplies and food for events, exhibit more high quality artists, and collaborate with professional artists, chefs, dancers and creatives from Cincinnati and beyond.
