Drop-in, $8 suggested per class

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Young Artists Studio is led by the Youth & Family Outreach Coordinator, Bridget Matros. Matros came to Waterfall Arts with over 15 years of teaching art at every level and setting — from preschool circle-time to computer literacy classes for the elderly. A practicing artist herself, Matros developed and grew the Art Studio exhibit and program at the Boston Children’s Museum, is a published advocate for quality creative development in early childhood education, and has been deemed one of 21 “young leaders in arts education” by Harvard scholars.

The Young Artists Studio is part of the Youth & Family Outreach (YFO) Program at Waterfall Arts. The program provides safe spaces for young artists to connect with themselves, each other, and the community through quality creative experiences.

The Youth & Family Outreach Program is made possible by local business sponsors Little River Veterinary Hospital, The Green Store, and VeloInk. Additional support is provided by foundations such as the the Onion Foundation, the Maine Arts Commission, as well as individual donors.
