"Let's Draw  Up a Collection of August Maine Memories!" Children's  Drawing Workshops at Rockland Public Library, 2014
Topic: Kids Art Class
"Let's Draw  Up a Collection of August Maine Memories!" Children's 
Drawing Workshops at Rockland Public Library, 2014

Press Release:

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 
librarian, 594-0310.

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
