Press Release: 

"Let's Draw February's Celebrations!" - Children's Drawing Workshops at Rockland Public Library

Rockland, Maine -  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  subjects from Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day,  and Mardi Gras. 2009 Chinese New Year, celebrated for 15 days, is the Year of the Ox. Subjects may include papercut ox designs, Chinese dragon, and Lion Dancers. Valentine's Day cards often have  hearts, birds, cupids, lace, ribbons, and roses. Mardi Gras motifs include masks, King cakes, doubloons, jazz instruments, jester, tricorn hat, and beads.  Knoth suggests that participants may bring in related books and pictures as a possible inclusion for the demonstrations..

Sponsored by the Wellin Family Foundation,  the workshops, for age 6 and up, are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. Ongoing workshops meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm, Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., and are hosted by Friends of Rockland Library.  FMI - Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.
