FLOW Reception and Art Show

The FLOW reception was a great evening of students sharing their perspective of FLOW with the community, and having their artwork on display in the lovely community room at the Patten Free Library. For the first time, this year's event was run almost entirely by students. They were poised and confident, and they shared their personal experiences from FLOW with pride and authenticity. 

Administrators from both RSU 1 and Chewonki were in attendance, along with nearly a hundred members of the community. The delicious snacks provided by Chewonki were happily devoured by the kids, and the whole evening had an air of positivity. All of the student artwork on display at the library can be seen by scrolling down this page. Their impressions of the landscapes they got to know are stunning. 

We are looking forward to FLOW 2019!
