SLICE: Make a Moving Panorama

May 24, 2023, 3:00 PM5:00 PM

Artist and author-illustrator Lucky Platt creates children’s picture books, life-sized bear paintings, crankies, mixed-media animations, relief prints, paper sculptures, and more in her lakeside studio in Burnham, Maine. Platt’s debut picture book, Imagine a Wolf was a 2022 Maine Literary Awards Finalist, a 2022 Ezra Jack Keats Award Finalist in New Writers, a 2021 New England Book Award Finalist.

Join Platt for a hands-on program on crankies-a unique moving panorama storytelling tool. Originating in the early 1800s, the crankie involves two handled spools that can be “cranked” to bring movement to an illustrated scroll. Platt will discuss her work as a children’s book illustrator and author.

For ages 13-18.
