Illustration workshop offers 'Visual Storytelling on the Moon'

Oct 04, 2019

ROCKLAND — On Thursday, Oct. 17, the Farnsworth Art Museum and the Rockland Public Library invite everyone to an illustration workshop led by artist Dorothy Royle. The workshop will take place at the Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., from 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. and is free to the public.

"Visual Storytelling on the Moon" is an illustration workshop open to all abilities and ages. Attendees will talk about what they love and are inspired by in picture books, and where ideas can come from, and then create a mixed-media picture book spread with a story in mind and based on a very wide-open moon theme. There will be time to share the creations with each other and see what stories they reveal.

Royle is a visual artist based in Burnham. She writes and illustrates under the name Lucky Platt, and she is currently working on her first picture book, "What Big Beautiful Ears You Have," to be published in 2020 by Page Street Kids. When she is not drawing, Royle works as a program manager for Maine Crafts Association. Visit her website at

This free program is another amazing collaboration between Rockland Public Library and the Farnsworth Art Museum. Space is limited so reservations are necessary. Call the library at 594-0310 to secure a spot.
