This spring, the University of Maine Department of Art will offer a five-week, after-school art program for children in grades K-8.

ArtWorks! gives children an opportunity to explore the world of art through viewing and hands-on experiences with a variety of visual media. All classes will be taught by UMaine students, under the supervision of art professor Laurie Hicks.

ArtWorks! will be held on Fridays in UMaine’s Lord Hall from 3:30–5 p.m., beginning March 31 and running through April 28. Class sections will be organized by grade level and will be limited to 22 students per group. Acceptance into the program will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applications should be submitted before Feb. 24. A $25 course fee will be charged for the spring session to cover the costs of materials used during the classes. A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information or to receive an application, call Hicks at 581-3247 or
