What is a crankie? Join artist and illustrator Lucky Platt for a hands-on program on the crankie- a unique moving panorama storytelling tool! Originating in the early 1800’s, the crankie involves two handled spools that can be ‘cranked’ to bring movement to an illustrated scroll. We will make mini crankies and the book Imagine A Wolf by Lucky Platt will be read aloud by the Waterville Public Library; this book is a part of the Great State of Maine Illustration exhibition at the Ticonic Gallery + Studios !
Please note the new location as Art in the Park and the Summer reading program will be at Castonguay Square, the little park at the corner of Common and Main Street!
Waterville Creates has joined forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to offer dynamic, creative summer programming to provide arts experiences for all. This season kicks off with a new summer reading theme “All Together Now: Todos Juntos Ahora (to-dos hune-tos a-or-da )” with stories and creations focusing on kindness, friendship, and unity. Each Thursday participants at Art in the Park can listen as a book is read aloud and create art work based on that book or community theme.
This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience. In the event of rain or extreme heat, Art in the Park will be indoors at the Paul J. Schupf Art Center.
