Masonry students build brick planter for church

Students helped design and build a brick sign planter

By

Maine School of Masonry students completed a community project at Living Waters Assembly of God on the Wilton Road.

The students helped design and build a beautiful brick sign planter. Six students from the school spent 3 days building the sign and the fourth day cleaning the bricks. The school's instructor; Steve “Mitch” Mitchell; added the three cross design. Morin Bricks of Auburn donated the bricks that were used for the sign.

These types of projects allow the students to work in the community and use materials that they are learning about using in school.

There are currently six students enrolled in the Masonry School this year, there are three efficiency apartments that house students from Maine to Texas. The program is designed for the students to develop skills and knowledge in the brick, block and stone masonry fields: trades that provide employment. The students develop skills through lab projects, classroom instruction and community involvement projects.
