Participating visual arts teachers are members of Northern pARTners, a group of regional art educators from school districts in Aroostook County that include Presque Isle/Mapleton, Caribou/Limestone, Houlton, Hodgdon, Mars Hill, Easton, Fort Fairfield, Washburn, Ashland,  Connor, Van Buren and Madawaska/St. Agatha.

Dottie Hutchins, Wintergreen’s executive director, says celebrating Youth Art Month is a great way to highlight visual arts education and recognize the dedication of visual arts teachers from the local school systems.

The opening reception will be held on March 1, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, during the First Friday Downtown Art Walk. Refreshments will be served and the event is free and open to the public.
