Art Class Teams up with Shaw House for Fundraiser

BANGOR - Students from an advanced art education class have teamed up to help raise money for the Shaw House in Bangor.

The class from UMaine taught teen residents how to create art from various objects.


The money raised will go towards buying musical instruments for those who take lessons from the staff.


Tuesday was also an opportunity for students to hone their teaching skills.


"It's a combination of thinking about some of the skills that the art education students need, in terms of developing service learning projects for when they become art teachers," Constant Albertson, Associate Professor of Art Education at UMaine, says.


"It's a good experience for us to teach art, but not in the traditional classroom setting," Julie Roach, a student in the class, says. "It's a great way to try and incorporate art and the community together. It was really interesting, especially with the Shaw House, to reach out and bring art together."


The items made will be sold at The Rock and Art Shop and Metropolitan Soul in downtown Bangor.


Each item is only five dollars and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Shaw House.
