Art in the Heart

Art teachers travel from a distance to attend the first Art in the Heart meeting of the school year

Thirty two art educators traveled to UMaine Orono for the first Art in the Heart meeting of the school year. The meetings provide an update for teachers but so much more is gained. The importance of taking the time to connect face-to-face is invaluable. The conversations are brief but meaningful. The farthest traveled is Millinocket, the closest is from Orono. The distance doesn’t matter when folks can connect with colleagues who share so many of the same experiences in their schools across Maine.

Thank you to UMaine arts professors Laurie Hicks and Connie Carter for hosting the meeting on campus.

Waterville High School’s Suzanne Goulet and Belfast High School’s Heidi O’Donnell engage in conversation after the meeting.
