EAC’s annual school break week Arts Camp was a colorful February highlight with an eager group of students aged 6 to 12 working via Zoom on a menagerie of paper-craft reptiles. Instructors Sara Myrick and Ann Cannizzaro, both full-time educators in Washington County, shared their school break time with the campers, encouraging and inspiring all to create the paper critters, and teaching paper skills—cutting, folding (including the tricky task of folding along a curve!), curling, and shaping. The students, joining from their homes in Eastport, Whiting, Pembroke and Calais, were engaged, ingenious and occasionally chatty!
EAC Video kept an eye on the Zoom sessions and put together a recap video for all to enjoy, with special help from John Newell, who wrote and performed a piano tune for the video. John is also well known in the EAC community as the energetic and creative director of Quoddy Voices, more about John’s music may be found at

Campers (or even those who are simply inspired by the recap video) are encouraged to send photos of their creations (such as the one below!) to Alison Brennan, EAC Education & Outreach Coordinator, at
