ROCKLAND — On Monday, July 15, the Farnsworth Art Museum and the Rockland Public Library present a children’s illustration workshop. Led by children’s book author/illustrator Annette LeBlanc Cate, the program takes place at the Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

During this program, Annette LeBlanc Cate will talk about her illustrations and share what makes a compelling story. Participating children will create a finished piece of art, exploring the steps a professional illustrator takes in the process, including sketching, reference, storyboarding and editing.

Annette LeBlanc Cate grew up in the Boston area and is the illustrator of two books, “The Magic Rabbit” and “Look Up! Birdwatching in Your Own Backyard,” both published by Candlewick Press. She is also the former art director for the Peabody award-winning animated series “Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist,” as well as a long time contributor to Appleseeds magazine.

This workshop is free and is recommended for children ages 7-12. Space is limited. For more information or to reserve a spot, please call the Rockland Public Library at 594-0310.

The Arts & Entertainment deadline is Thursdays at 5 p.m. for events dated on/between the following two Thursdays. Please email press releases/photos to A&E Editor Christine Dunkle at arts@villagesoup.com.
