Great Lakes Illustration Workshops with Tom Woodruff

My name is Tom Woodruff.  I am the illustrator of four children’s history books which you may have seen in your school library: Michigan, An Illustrated History For Children, Great Lakes and Great Ships, Indians of the Great Lakes, Prehistoric Great Lakes. These books are being used in Elementary and Middle Schools throughout the Great Lakes Area.


Over the past thirty years, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my love for Michigan and the Great Lakes Region, with students and teachers in schools, libraries and conferences, throughout the state. My Great Lakes Illustration Workshops, engage students, of all ages, in challenging and fun drawing and writing projects. We explore the history and natural resources of the world. My Illustration workshops can be custom tailored to most any topic, or event.
