Johnson speaks about UMMA Winter Art Factory on WABI

Kat Johnson, education coordinator at the University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor, was a recent guest on WABI (Channel 5). She spoke about the museum’s Winter Art Factory set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3. The event, which will be held ahead of the Festival of Lights Parade, will include several stations for creating ornaments, wrapping paper and a paper lantern to take to the parade, according to the report. “It is so much fun,” Johnson says of the annual event. “It is one of the many programs we offer to our community that is free and open to the public for them to come in — at any age — and make art.” All supplies are included and guided instruction is provided, she said.
