Celebrating Traditional Arts Recipients
Bridgton Community Center

Bridgton Community CenterGrant: $1,500This grant supports a series of six classes for all phases of folk art mural painting, three classes for youth and three classes for adults. All classes will produce murals to be displayed. Adults and children will learn all phases of prep work at their appropriate levels from photography, sketching, choosing materials, history and actually completing murals. The classes will culminate in a celebration and exhibit at the Bridgton Community Center. The murals will be moveable and available for exhibition in other parts of the Lakes Region on invitation. This is a community building across generation’s project, encouraging appreciation for the area’s history, folk arts and artists. It is hoped that it will inspire more artists.
