Leonardtown, MD – Ellen Duke Wilson, a recently retired art teacher from Leonardtown Elementary School, is sharing her love for art with local youth this summer at the St. Clement’s Island Museum.

In a new art program launched this summer called SCIMAK (St. Clement’s Island Museum Art Kids), Ellen volunteers her time to teach painting, drawing and sculpting to children ages 7 to 17. In each class, students learn art techniques and produce a work of art that will help make a difference in their community. During Ellen’s painting class held in July, students created a poster for St. Clement’s Island to remind visitors to remove their trash from the island.

Wilson’s final class for the summer will be called “Collage: Fitting the Pieces Together,” and take place August 7 – 9, from 12 to 3 p.m., at the St. Clement’s Island Museum. To register your child for this class, call Christina Barbour at 301-769-4723.
