Children's Drawing Class


 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 subjects for Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, and President's Day.  Each week is a different subject:

2/03     Valentine's Day cards & papercuts
2/10     Chinese New Year Season - Year of the Sheep, Ram, Goat, starts 2/19
2/17     Mardi Gras masks,
2/24     Presidents


Sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin,  the workshops, for age 6 and up, are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. Children age 10 and under should be accompanied by an adult. Ongoing workshops meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm, Community Room, hosted by Friends of Rockland Library.

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. Chinese New Year 2015, which starts 2/19, is celebrated for 15 days. It is the Year of the Sheep. Participants may explore traditional papercut  designs, Chinese dragons, and Lion Dancers.  Mardi Gras  motifs include masks, King cakes, doubloons, jazz instruments, jester, tricorn hat, and beads. In honor of the presidents, students will explore  classic presidential portraits.
