Children's Drawing Class
"Let's Draw February's Celebrations!"
Children will draw images from February's celebrations and traditions at Rockland Public Library's ongoing drawing workshops led by artist Catinka Knoth. Participants draw along with Knoth as she demonstrates how to draw and make motifs for Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, President's Day, and Mardi Gras. Each week is a different subject:
2/06 Valentine's Day cards & papercuts
2/13 Mardi Gras
2/20 Presidents Day
2/27 Chinese New Year Season - Year of the Dog
Young artists will draw a wide range of motifs. Valentine's Day cards often have motifs such as hearts, birds, cupids, lace, ribbons, and roses. Mardi Gras motifs include masks, King cakes, doubloons, jazz instruments, jesters, tricorn hats, and beads. In honor of the presidents and Black History Month, students might also explore classic portraits and scenes. Chinese New Year 2018 is the Year of the Dog. Participants may explore traditional zodiac papercut designs, Chinese dragons, and Lion Dancers.
Wendy and Keith Wellin sponsor the ongoing free workshops, geared for age 6 and up, (including the young at heart). Children age 10 and under need adult accompaniment. Knoth expects participants to work independently for the most part. The workshops provide all materials. Classes meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm., Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Friends of Rockland Library host. FMI - Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.
