ArtWorks! applications open for youth grades K–8

Applications for this fall’s ArtWorks!, a series of art classes taught by University of Maine art education students for youth grades K–8, are due Sept. 30. 

The program starts Oct. 14 and continues every Friday, 3:30–5 p.m, until Nov. 4, with an exhibition and reception Nov. 11. Classes will take place in Lord Hall on campus.

ArtWorks! provides future art teachers the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for success in their future classrooms. Student teachers are supervised by Constant Albertson, UMaine associate professor of art and art education.

Class sections are organized by age and grade level. Spaces are limited; acceptance will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A $30 course fee covers the costs of materials used in the classes. 

Application information is available on the Department of Art website. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Constant Albertson, 207.581.3251;
