Art Class Presents Wildlife Refuge with Funds Raised

Students in an advanced art education course taught by Constant Albertson at the University of Maine presented $2,730 to the Hirundo Wildlife Refuge on Wednesday.

The From Art to Empathy students created, marketed and sold ceramic mugs for $10 to support educational programs for children at Hirundo. Each handcrafted mug features a unique design inspired by nature.

The four students — Hannah Berta of Rockport, Elizabeth Miller of Kittery, Abigail LeBlanc of Brewer and Nicole McGuigan of Woolwich — worked together to spread knowledge and inspire the community.

The students raised $2,930, and after spending $200 for materials, they were able to present Hirundo with $2,730, according to Albertson.

Hirundo Wildlife Refuge is a 2,400-acre nature preserve 10 miles from the UMaine campus. The Hirundo land was deeded to UMaine in 1983, cementing a long-term collaboration based on research and scientific studies, according to its website.
