Join Ogunquit artist Laura Jaquays for a morning of creative wellness at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art. The founder of Art HOPE, she will be hometown host for a tour of the art galleries and seaside sculpture gardens overlooking Narrow Cove. The program invites participants to enjoy observational drawing and writing, and viewing one of Maine’s finest collections at the historic hub of Ogunquit’s art colony. Laura will offer a creative exercise inspired by the current exhibit BOUNDARIES, a collaborative visual literary project between presidential inaugural poet Richard Blanco and contemporary landscape photographer Jacob Bond Hessler. Blanco’s poems and Hessler’s photographs together investigate the visible and invisible boundaries of race, gender, class, and ethnicity in the American experience.

Workshop materials will be provided. A free community arts program suppoprted by Art HOPE, the OMAA, and York Hospital Cancer Care. Pre-registration is required.
