Topic: Kids Art Class
Press Release:
September Harvests a Theme for Children's Drawing Classes at Rockland Library, 2014

Rockland - Children, and those young at heart, will explore farming, harvest, and seasonal themes in this September's ongoing drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. The "Let's Draw Together!" sessions, geared for ages six and up, also welcome adults. The library requests that children age ten and under have an adult accompany them. Classes meet every Tuesday from 4-5 p.m. in the Friends Community Room. FMI - Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.

September subjects include butterflies and Monarch butterfly migration; farm scenes of haying and the fall harvest; farm animals such as cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, roosters, geese, and ducks; visits to the apple orchard and apple picking; and September gardens. Each week is a different subject.

09/02 Butterflies and Monarch butterfly migration
09/09 Farm scenes of haying and the fall harvest
09/16 Barnyard animals such as cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, roosters, geese, and ducks
09/23 Visits to the apple orchard and apple picking
09/30 September gardens

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.

Wendy and Keith Wellin sponsor the children's workshops, which are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. The Friends of Rockland Library host.
