Please note! There are just a few spaces left for this workshop. Contact Alison, to reserve, first-come, first-served! Curious about instructor Sara? Scroll down to see video of her working with students during EAC’s February Vacation Zoom Arts Camp.

Popular EAC instructor Sara Myrick will lead a workshop from 1:30-3:30 pm, Saturday, October 16, working with attendees to create Halloween-themed shadow boxes or vignette trays. The event is planned for all ages; participants are asked to wear masks, and each family ‘bubble’ or group will have their own work station.
Each group will create a Halloween shadow box display (upright) or a vignette tray (table-top), featuring little compartments full of curiosities. Myrick will provide an array of miniature autumn and Halloween-themed items for participants to incorporate into their creations. Participants are also welcome to bring their own special touches and ideas.

Myrick teaches K-12 art full-time in the Eastport schools, and has led workshops beyond counting at EAC and Peavey Library, and also via a Facebook group, ‘Art with Ms. M,’ where she shares her demonstration videos for an array of fun projects using commonplace materials. She is also owner of Coastal Whims, a home-based art business celebrating her love of nature and handcrafting. 

Workshop spaces are limited; participants must register with Alison Brennan at Please register early to guarantee your space! The $5/child fee includes all materials; participants are welcome to bring craft materials or Halloween figurines to include, if desired.

Support for this workshop has been provided by Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.  A sliding fee scale is available by request.
