We at EAC have been thrilled to see all of the efforts being put forth by educators and arts organizations to bring arts experiences and education into our lives and homes during this time when participating in community means staying at a distance from others. Please feel free to email us additional suggestions for this page; we’ll keep adding on.

Participatory music events
Cobscook Institute has offered Virtual Monday Night Music Circles via Zoom every week since pandemic closures began in March 2020. All are invited to bring an instrument or their voice, or to just listen in.

Online arts learning
Cherryfield-based artist and popular EAC workshop instructor Audra Christie of AUD Art, and Sara Myrick of ‘Art with Ms. M’‘, art teacher for the Eastport schools and another popular EAC workshop instructor both offer free art instruction videos via Facebook.
