"Let's Draw Up a Collection of August Maine Memories!" Children's
Drawing Workshops at Rockland Public Library, 2014
Rockland - Children will continue exploring Maine memories this summer
at the weekly drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public
Library. Knoth leads children, (and adults), ages 6 and up, in
follow-along drawings on a variety of motifs. Children age 10 and under
should be accompanied by an adult.
Wendy and Keith Wellin sponsor the workshops, which are free and open
to the public with all materials provided. Classes meet every Tuesday,
4-5 pm, Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., hosted
by the Friends of Rockland Library. FMI - Jean Young, children's
August themes will include subjects such as: Maine lighthouses and
boats, Maine birds such as puffins, eagles, ospreys, chickadees, Maine
farms with blueberry farming and belted galloways; and a Maine country
fair. Each week is a different theme.
8/05 "Let's draw Maine lighthouses and boats!"
8/12 "Let's draw Maine birds!"
8/19 "Let's draw Maine farming scenes!"
8/26 "Let's draw a Maine country fair"
Knoth believes that everyone can draw if they keep their minds and eyes
open, and that drawing by 'following along' allows one to discover new
ways of interpreting subjects. She expects participants 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. Her work may be seen at www.catinkacards.com
