This is a class for people who want to be in a safe and fun environment that encourages social connections and support. We consider our class community to be “artistic explorers” who experiment using a variety of media which may include acrylic paints, oil pastels, colored pencils, inks and prints to create unique pieces of mixed media art. It’s about fun and activating our creative juices. One of our favorite questions is “what would happen if….?” We have lots of ideas and plans, but we also like to have choices and let things develop based on what people are interested in. There will be a fee for materials for this class.

Carole Baldwin chairs the UMASC Board of Directors and Curriculum Committee and subs Fit For Life classes! She was a high school health and PE teacher/coach, health educator for the School Health Education Program and Health Programming Incorporated, Substance Abuse Educator/Counselor, and guidance counselor for Skowhegan Middle School.

She has been a member of the faculty at the University of Maine at Farmington for almost twenty years and was previously a classroom teacher at a variety of grade levels. Her work as a clinical counselor, a polarity therapist, and a teacher have all fed her passion for seeing the best in people and supporting them in their personal growth and exploration. Elizabeth loves being creative and views working with acrylic paints as a perfect opportunity to experiment and explore.
