Children's Drawing Class
Children will draw the Iditarod Dog Sled Races,
St. Patrick's Day, Spring, and the circus, at Rockland Public Library's
ongoing drawing workshops led by Rockland artist Catinka Knoth.
Participants follow along with Knoth as she demonstrates creating a
variety of subjects for March. Husky dogs, mushers and dog sled teams,
are motifs from the Iditarod Race in Alaska. The class may also
experiment with papercuts of dog teams. St. Patrick's Day has it's
shamrocks, St. Patrick, leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows, and Celtic
designs. The first day of Spring in 2015 is March 20th. Traditionally
March was when 'the circus comes to town', bringing acrobats, animals,
clowns, and tents. The class will also explore decorative egg designs,
cards, and motifs in preparation for Easter.
Tuesdays; 4-5pm, "Let's Draw a March Medley!"
Local patrons, Wendy and Keith Wellin, provide the workshops free and open
to the public, with all materials provided. The workshops, for ages 6 and up
as well as the young at heart, offer the opportunity to make art together.
Children age 10 and under need adult accompaniment. Knoth expects
participants to be able to work independently for the most part. Ongoing
workshops meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm., Community Room, Rockland Public
Library, 80 Union St., hosted
by Friends of Rockland Library. FMI - Jean Young, children's librarian,
