Eastport Arts Center Sponsors Youth Art Month

Youth Art Month is a national celebration of the visual arts!  It encourages support for quality school art programs and provides a way to recognize skills developed through art experiences such as: problem solving, creativity and visual perception.  This is the 4th year that the Eastport Arts Center has sponsored a Student Art Exhibit to celebrate Youth Art Month.  The exhibit includes student art from many area schools.  One artwork from each grade is selected from every participating K-8 school and 8 pieces are chosen from area high schools as well.  It is an honor for a student’s artwork to be chosen for this show.

A reception for the artists will be held on Saturday March 24th from 2-4 pm.  Everyone is invited!  Please come, enjoy the artwork and encourage the artists.  Light refreshments will be served.  If you can’t make it to the reception please stop into the Art Center’s Washington Street Gallery to see the show at another time.  It will be on display through April 29th.  The gallery is open Tuesdays through Fridays in the afternoons and during all EAC events.

Students from Calais Elementary School whose artwork will be in the show are:  Kindergarten – Ava Townsend,  1st grade – Eric Barnard,  2nd grade – Liam Garland,  3rd grade – Liam Travis,  4th grade- Maggie O’Roarke and 6th grade – Serena Cottrell.   Students whose art will be representing CMHS are: Marshall Campbell, Jacob Maheux, Hannah Alley, Abby Downing, Darryl Glidewell, Trinity White, Alyssa Farrar, Jana McDonald, Alison Moffett and Lacey Porter.
