Case Correa ’14, a visual arts and English major, has a Community Matters in Maine fellowship from the McKeen Center this summer to bring art classes to disadvantaged children. She is interning with ArtVan, a “free mobile arts therapy program” based in Bath, Maine. The nonprofit transports art supplies and art teachers “via a colorful painted van to children, teens and adults who have the least amount of social services, after-school and summer activities available to them,” ArtVan’s website says.
Each summer, the McKeen Center places students with local nonprofits to address community issues while strengthening campus-community partnerships. Correa recently answered some questions about her internship via email.
