Make a Crankie

July 13, 3:00 PM5:00 PM


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. Celebrate the moving image at the Maine International Film Festival AND at Art in the Park!

Book: We Are Better Together by Bill McKibben

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 JuntosAhora (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 artwork 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.
