I had a great time in Orono with 22 arts students who attended MAAE's Careers in the Arts day and enjoyed a kick off concert and workshop discussions and descriptions for a wide variety of arts fields from Graphic Design to Yacht Building to Pottery. It's also a great way to make meaningful connections with working artists.
These are the kinds of things that students need to see and understand to truly appreciate the impact that the arts has in our economy and in the way of life for citizens in Maine. It was a great day and my students were all very "pumped"!
