A Girl’s Perspective: Art & Photography


We put out an “open call” this spring, asking Maine girls to share their thoughts and artistic talents for this inaugural issue, and we were blown away by the response. Thank you to all the girls who shared their artwork, photography and writing. We’re so unbelievably impressed by your thoughtfulness, creativity and passion.
