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 and make motifs for February celebrations. Each week is a different subject:

Tuesdays  4-5 p.m. 

2/2- Mardi Gras Masks

2/9- Valentine's Day cards & papercuts

2/16- Presidents

2/23- Chinese New Year Season- Year of the Monkey

Young artists will  draw a wide range of motifs. Mardi Gras  motifs include masks, King cakes, doubloons, jazz instruments, jester, tricorn hat, and beads. Valentine's Day cards often have motifs such as hearts, birds, cupids, lace, ribbons, and roses. In honor of the presidents, students will explore  classic presidential portraits. Chinese New Year 2016, which starts 2/08, is celebrated for 15 days. It is the Year of the Monkey. Participants may explore traditional zodiac papercut  designs, Chinese dragons, and Lion Dancers.

Wendy and Keith Wellin sponsor the workshops, which are free and open to the public, with all materials provided, and geared for age 6 and up. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas for the session's drawing. Knoth then leads the children in "follow along" drawings. If time allows, Knoth takes group photos of the students' work at the end of class.

Library policy is that children age 10 and under  be accompanied by an adult. Classes meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm, in the Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. The Friends of Rockland Library host.  FMI - Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.
