From Maine Insights:

Portland Ovations and the Oak Street Studios have teamed up at the Portland Public Library on Saturday on March 29th from 11:00am to noon, for a family friendly, bookmaking workshop.

Using picture books for inspiration, such as We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown, participants will be invited to create a character that travels through an adventure book of their own making. This workshop is free and open to families young and old. Children 10 years and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

As a part of an on-going collaboration between Portland Ovations, Portland Public Library and Oak Street Studios, the workshop is in conjunction with Portland Ovations Family Series performance at Merrill Auditorium on April 5th of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt directed by Sally Cookson. It will be filled with catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventure- plus a few special surprises.

Portland Ovations contributes to the cultural, social and economic well-being of our community by presenting an array of high quality performing artists from around the world and creating diverse educational experiences that bring the enjoyment, energy and enrichment of the arts to all, through Ovations Offstage.
