Celebration

Maine Excellence in Arts Education

Last week at the State House students, teachers, parents and other community members came together to celebrate the art of children. There was music, dancing, poetry recitations, and much more. The Maine Arts Commission (MAC) Maine Excellence in Arts Education celebration is an opportunity to recognize students whose art work is on display throughout the State House complex.

Forty students were recognized for their accomplishments and presented a certificate by David Greenham, MAC Chair and Martha Piscuskas, MAC Director of Arts Education. Performances were provided by the Maine Arts Academy Chamber Singers from Sidney, Little Eagles Drumming Group from Pleasant Point, and the Indian Township School Dancers.
