Last summer Carol Shutt and Laurie Beal visited Cuba for 16 days traveling through the country, creating art and more. Join them for their talk “Cuba: Through an Open Door” at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, March 2 at 7 p.m. Shutt, who is an art teacher at Mount Desert Elementary School, and Beal, who is a Spanish teacher at Mount Desert Elementary School, will tell stories and share photographs, examples of the art made by Shutt during their time in the country.
Shutt and Beal spent time in Havana, and also traveled to the towns of Cienfuegos and Trinidad on the Caribbean coast of Cuba. They taught and made art with a fourth grade class in Havana, visited museums and historic sites, took an Afro-Cuban dance lesson, toured the city in classic cars and taxis, enjoyed the cuisine in restaurants and paladares, learned about the plants and trees native to the island and practiced their Spanish.
