Make A One-Page Book! with Sarah Keener

Careers in Art Series for Kids

10am – Noon for ages 6 – 8

1 pm – 3 pm for ages 9 and Up

Winter in Maine is long, but there’s a lot to love! Celebrate the five senses of the season by creating a one-page folded book of poetry. This workshop will include playful poetry writing prompts and a hands-on exploration of some basic bookmaking techniques, including cutting, gluing and folding paper, suminagashi paper marbling, and stencil “printing.”

Sarah Keener taught language arts for several years and has worked with children of all ages in the areas of literacy and art. A lifelong lover of books and of arts and crafts, she believes language and the arts are a natural fit and draws from a variety of digital and print resources to implement effective and engaging activities. Sarah seeks to create opportunities for kids to explore these disciplines in a positive and playful environment, which helps them grow more confident and excited about expressing themselves in words and a variety of mediums. 

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.

More information about the program:

This workshop series is designed to expose children to the myriad of processes and professions for visual artists (illustration, design, fiber arts, literacy and making books, visualizing nature and science, architecture, etc.) The series 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.  It has been evidenced that activity in all of the arts fosters creativity and increases a childs’ learning capacity for all subjects.

The Western Maine Art Group (WMAG), 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.
