The Montclair Art Museum has got a full calendar of events in January, for art toddlers to adults.

For parents with young children there is MAM Park Bench, a program that introduces children to the museum and serves as an artistic social outing. It meets on the second Wednesday of the month, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The January 11 ­program is called “Wild Shapes”. There are also two home school days this month: Thursday, January 19 for ages 9 to 13 and Friday, January 20 for ages 4 to 8, from noon to 2 p.m. both days. The cost for all these programs is $6 per child, $12 per adult. The home school days include a gallery tour and a studio art project led by MAM educator Emily Kenselaar. RSVP by e-mail to attend.

The kids might also get a kick from the pet portraiture workshop on Sunday, January 29 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Open to children 8 and older, it will cover drawing basics and animal anatomy. The cost is $30 for members and $50 for non-members.

For adults, the museum will initiate a new special interest group on contemporary art on Thursday, January 12, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. “MAM Contemporaries: The Cute, the Bad, and the Ugly” will be a participatory food performance involving artist Marina Zurkow and celebrity chef Gene Rurka. Tickets are $40 for members and $50 non-members. To purchase tickets, please contact Talia Selove at 973-259-5147 or by e-mail. On Wednesday, January 25, there will be a free panel discussion at 7 p.m. with the creators of the new play “Stick Fly”, now at the Cort Theatre in Manhattan.

The museum also is offering several adult workshops in the creation of clay nesting bowls, ink wash painting and drawing, fused glass jewelry and photographing children.
