CMA School and Community Programs Manager and Teaching Artist Mackie Saylor leads her popular Movement with Mackie class as part of Free Fridays, which provide free access to our most popular CMA Live! classes while amplifying important community topics.

Examine work by artist Faith Ringgold and explore the stories in her paintings and quilts through movement. Like Ringgold’s performance art, we will tell our stories through pantomime, or acting out a story without using words. How will you tell a story with just your body and facial expressions?
