Local Artist Teaches Kids a Little Art Therapy
Kids in Brewer have their artwork displayed on Center Street for all to see.Pigeon, a local artist, met up with a group of students on Friday to do a little art therapy.Kids made their own creations and then got to paste them onto a building in Brewer. The artist said many people can feel like an outsider even in their own town. He believes the drawings are a way for the kids to make a building feel like their own. “These bricks weren’t just laid by a worker that they don’t know. It’s also them, they did something to make this place look the way it is. I think that’s really empowering and gives a lot if power to them,” said Pigeon.The artist and the kids hope to continue the project again next year.
