WABI, WVII Report on UMaine Art Class, Shaw House Fundraising Effort

WABI (Channel 5) and WVII (Channel 7) reported University of Maine students in an advanced art education course are facilitating an art-making and fundraising project to benefit the Shaw House of Bangor, an organization that works with youth who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. The art education students are helping the Shaw House teens make ceramic pins that will then be sold to buy instruments for the many residents who take music lessons from the staff and volunteers. Constant Albertson, an associate professor of art education who teaches the class, said the course helps students develop service learning projects for when they become art teachers. Julie Roach, a student in the class, said the project is a great way to incorporate art and community together.
