Art Education Students to Give Presentation on Shaw House Fundraising Project

University of Maine students in an advanced art education course will give a presentation on their art service learning project at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 3 in 100 Lord Hall.

Charlotte Gaylord, Julie Roach and Lowansa Sprague Tompkins will speak about the art-making and fundraising project they created to aid the purchase of musical instruments for the Shaw House, a Bangor organization that works with youth who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless.

The students helped the youth make ceramic pins that were then sold for $5 at shops in downtown Bangor. The goal of the Topics in Art Education class was to teach teen Shaw House residents how to use art in a beneficial way.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Pins will be on sale during the event.
