Tuesdays 4-5 p.m.
Children's Drawing Class
"Let's Draw in Celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Thanksgiving, and the Coming of Winter!" is the November program for the ongoing free drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public Library. Children will explore such motifs as woodland animals; Native American designs, lodging, hunting, and game; and foods and family gatherings. Knoth leads children age 6 and up in these "follow along" sessions every Tuesday, 4-5 pm, in the library's Community Room, 80 Union Street. Children 10 and under should be accompanied by an adult. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently and encourages adults to join in the drawing fun.
Each week is a different subject:
11/01 Let's Draw Deer!
11/08 Let's Draw Woodland Critters - Chipmunks, Squirrels, mice!
11/15 Let's Draw Woodland Animals - Bears, raccoons, foxes
11/22 Let's Draw Turkeys, a Pilgrim Feast, and a Cornucopia for
11/29 Let's Draw Native American Designs and Motifs!
Participants draw along with Knoth and experience drawing in a safe community environment. She expects students to be able to work independently for the most part. Knoth, known for her watercolors of Maine scenes and animal drawings, also gives art workshops for adults at the library. Her work may be seen at www.catinkacards.com.
