Art teacher extraordinaire, Pam Dunphy, will be teaching a Beginning Printmaking class on Saturday, October 1 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Old Town Elementary School.

Pam moved to Old Town, Maine in 1973 and after graduating from Old Town High School she attended the University of Maine to become an art teacher.  Since then she has been teaching art at Old Town Elementary School for the past twenty five years!  Pam has won numerous art awards.  Her art style is known as Expressive Realism and she creates this by copying her subjects until they “dance” within the composition.  Pam is always learning and this is one reason art is such an exciting career for her.
