New Books, New Readers by Maine Humanities Council

Free

with RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education

Calendar Feb 11, 2020 at 5 pm

The Maine Humanities Council, a statewide non-profit organization, uses the humanities— literature, history, philosophy, and culture — as a tool for positive change in Maine communities. Our programs and grants encourage critical thinking and conversations across social, economic, and cultural boundaries.

This New Books, New Readers series will feature the Wabanaki people.  The Wabanaki communities have lived on the land now called Maine for over 10,000 years. How have Wabanaki people asked and answered the questions who are we? where are we? how did we get here? And where might we be going? – before ‘Maine’, as ‘Maine’ became a state? How are Wabanaki people and communities asking and answering these and other questions now, after 200 years of living in ‘Maine’?

This series will meet 4 times this semester on the following Tuesdays:

  • February 11
  • March 17
  • April 14
  • May 5

Painting Club

$5

with Marilyn Rogers-Bull, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education

Calendar Feb 24, 2020 at 5 pm, runs for 10 weeks

This is not a beginner’s class. It is for those who have painted in the past or present and would like to join others who love to share their love of painting. Painters are encouraged to use any medium they might choose. Marilyn uses oils and watercolors mostly, but if you prefer another kind, that is fine also. We would love to have you join us!

A few words from Marilyn – I am not a teacher; have only had a few lessons myself. But…Many years ago while walking on a beach in Florida, I dreamed up the idea of having a class at Skowhegan Adult Ed for those who might love to paint as much as I do. I went to the Skowhegan Adult Ed office and made a deal with them; that if they would let me have a room once a week for such an idea (and since I’m not a teacher) I shouldn’t be paid. It is such a blessing and I have found some wonderful friends, many of whom can paint much better than I can.
