Registration is now open for Wintergreen Art Center’s Summer Arts Program.

Classes begin on July 9, 2018, and include Art with HeART located at The Lighthouse, 65 Carmichael Street; Photography at Wintergreen; Choreographed Dance at the Sargent Family Community Center; and Arts & Crafts at the Presque Isle Rehab & Nursing Center.

Classes are organized in two 3-week sessions ending on August 16, 2018.  A flyer with more details may be found at

“Summer Arts Teacher Shaye McHatten is back with a summer program full of fun and creativity,” said Dottie Hutchins, Wintergreen’s executive director.  “Shaye and Emma Beaulieu, our assistant teacher, are magic together.  From a diverse, multi-location program for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade to an arts and crafts program for seniors at the nursing home, they bring love and laughter every day.”

This is Wintergreen’s second summer of teaching art classes in neighborhoods and senior care facilities in Pesque Isle.

“We’re continuing to think outside the Center,” said Hutchins.  “This summer’s programming is another step towards our goal of bringing art directly to people who may not otherwise be able to get to Wintergreen.  We’re also thrilled to be a part of the vibrancy at the new Sargent Family Community Center by offering dance in the Multi-Purpose Room.  Plus Shaye is offering a special Teen Night on Thursdays at The Lighthouse.  It truly is going to be a fun summer.”

Those interested in the program can register by calling (207) 762-3576, Monday through Thursday, 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm, or e-mail
