Art in the Heart

March 21, 2019

YAM Mall Exhibit

Art in the Heart of Maine annually partners with the University of Maine Museum of Art, the Maine Art Education Association and the Bangor Mall to exhibit artwork created by students from the greater Bangor area. This 3 week exhibit celebrates Youth Art Month and allows art educators to show off the magnificent work their students are producing. One of my favorite outcomes of this exhibit entails garnering inspiration from my fellow educators for lesson ideas to bring back to my own classroom. Our show opened on Sunday, March 3rd and will close Saturday, March 23rd. The following educators and schools participated in the 2019 Mall Show.

Careers in Art Series for Kids

March 17, 2019

Folk Art Studio at Fiber and Vine

The fourth children’s workshop in the Careers in Art Series for Kids, Felt-Stitch-Weave will be led by Kimberly Hamlin at The Folk Art Studio at Fiber and Vine, 402 Main Street in Norway on Saturday, April 13th.  This workshop series is designed to expose children to the myriad of processes and professions for visual artists and aims to open pathways for kids to consider making as a worthwhile activity and even imagine a dream that becomes a viable profession one day. For this workshop, please register by April 6th.

Workshop Description: Learn to use fiber in all sorts of ways! We’ll begin by combining colorful wool roving, wool locks, silk fibers and yarn to create our own fabric. We will then use simple hand stitching techniques to embellish our projects. Students can choose to fold their fabric into a wallet/pouch or keep it flat as a wall hanging, either way everyone will go home with a 100% unique piece of fiber art! In between tasks, kids can take a break and try weaving on Kim’s community loom project. This piece will be finished and on display at Cafe Nomad, 450 Main Street, Norway, ME during the month of June.

Kim Hamlin is a fiber artist, designer and dancer living in Western Maine. Kim co-owns and manages Fiber & Vine, a spacious and creative fiber shop that also specializes in wine. Kim has been teaching children dance and other creative arts for over 10 years. She believes in building solid technical foundations and supporting individual creativity and expression.

The Western Maine Art Group, The Folk Art Studio, and Fiber & Vine have partnered to bring this workshop series to the Oxford Hills. Through a generous grant from The Norway Savings Bank, Oxford Credit Union, and the Rotary Club, scholarships are offered for those with financial need.  Workshops cost $35 each or $10 for scholarship recipients. Workshops are currently presented for two age groups: 10 am – noon for children ages 6 – 8 and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm for children ages 9 and up.  For information, scholarship requests, and registration, contact fiberandvine.com.
