Topic: Recipes
sweet potatoes and green beans dish photo

Just saute in a bit of olive oil, potatoes first. Set them aside when done. Then do the beans. (Potatoes get covered while cooking but not the beans.) Mix together with a touch of vinegar, sprinkled and tossed.

"Let's Draw Pictures and Cards for the Holiday Season!" Children's Drawing Workshops
Topic: Kids Art Class

Press Release:

"Let's Draw Pictures and Cards for the Holiday Season!" Children's Drawing Workshops at Rockland Library

Rockland - This month children will explore motifs from the traditional celebrations of December in the free drawing classes at Rockland Public Library led by Catinka Knoth. Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, Winter solstice, and New Year's offer lots of imagery for creative fun. Students will draw images such as holiday wreaths, trees, gingerbread houses, ornaments and decorations; Santa Claus, toys, & elves; reindeer and sleighs; gift giving and more.

Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas for the day's drawing. Knoth then leads children age 6 and up in "follow along" drawings. Knoth encourages adults to join in the drawing. Classes meet every Tuesday, 4-5pm, in the Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. 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. Contact Jean Young, children's librarian, at 594-0310 for more information.
