Letter to the editor: Dear Children of Rockland

Posted:  Monday, March 20, 2017 - 1:45pm

Dear Children of Rockland: Suzette McAvoy, director of the Center for Maine Contemporary Art , hosted Heart and Soul's first children's poster making party on St. Patrick's day; definitely a Lucky day for Heart and Soul!

Thank you, Suzette. Rockland is fortunate to have you pulling for our kids.

Another big thank you goes to Alexis Iammarino, CMCA's resident sprite and the director of ArtLab. Alexis by the way, created that show stopping mural found on the side of the Rock City building downtown. She knows how to inspire young artists and provide the best art supplies. No stubby pencils or broken crayons for her crew.

Alexis really knows collaborative art projects and Rockland children are invited to join her. Why? because CMCA is for children too. So go find Alexis and have fun making something cool. CMCA is the new building downtown on Winter Street, with the gigantic LEGO people.

Now, kids, please listen up because there is a Second Art Party: Next Saturday, March 25, from 1-3 p.m. at the Rockland Public Library. The theme is “What do you love about Rockland?”

We want and need your posters to display around town. We'll bring all the supplies. You bring you. Hope to see you there.

Debby Atwell lives in Rockland.
