An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Thursday, repeating until March 29, 2018
The Eastport Arts Center’s KinderArts session for March will be led by artist and educator Fern Hilyard. The free program, held on Thursdays, March 8, 15 and 29 from 9:30-10:15 am, is designed to encourage young children to explore the visual and performing arts in a secure and social environment through hands-on experiences. Children up to age 5 are welcome to attend, but must come with a caregiver.
Hilyard has pursued teaching special and gifted students in core subjects including art and writing over the past 20 years. Since 2012 she has been a teacher with the alternative high school program, Passages at Wayfinder Schools, working with young parents and their children in their homes. In addition to her work in education, Hilyard has been a graphic designer, copy editor, dog walker, plant sitter, home-schooler, set designer, prep cook, museum docent, research assistant, school secretary and mask maker.
