ArtWorks! Spring 2018

The Department of Art is now accepting applications for the after school ArtWorks! program.

As it has for more than 30 years, UMaine’s Art Education Program will offer the program for students in grades K-8. ArtWorks! provides children an opportunity to explore the world of art through hands-on experiences with a variety of visual media, the history of art, and the viewing of art works.

The Spring ArtWorks! session will run five consecutive weeks with classes held 3:30-5 p.m. Fridays in Lord Hall on the UMaine campus. Classes begin March 20th and continue through April 17th.

The classes are organized by grade level and are taught by art education majors, who are preparing to become art teachers. The program is supervised by Laurie E. Hicks, professor of art.

Participants will have the opportunity to work with diverse media as they explore the ways in which experiences with art help encourage creative expression, manipulative skills as well as ways of seeing and understanding the visual world. This semester, students will consider and make art as a form of storytelling.

A $25.00 fee covers the cost of materials. The program is offered on a first come, first serve basis. Applications are available through the Department of Art and are due no later than February 25.

For more information or an application, contact Hicks at 581-3247 or laurie.hicks@umit.maine.edu. Lord Hall is wheelchair accessible.
