Drawing Workshops

Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00 PM - Community Room (lower level)

Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas for the day's drawing. Local artist Catinka Knoth then leads children ages 6 and up in "follow along" drawings. Knoth encourages adults to join in the drawing. Children 10 and under should be accompanied by an adult. The program, sponsored by Wendy & Keith Wellin, is free with all materials supplied, and hosted by Friends of Rockland Library.
