Topic: Kids Art Class
Rockland - 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 for Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, and possibly President's Day. Participants will draw a wide range of motifs. Valentine's Day cards often have motifs such as hearts, birds, cupids, lace, ribbons, and roses. Mardi Gras motifs include masks, King cakes, doubloons, jazz instruments, jester, tricorn hat, and beads. Chinese New Year 2011, celebrated for 15 days, is the Year of the Rabbit. Participants may explore papercut rabbit designs, Chinese dragons, and Lion Dancers. Knoth suggests that participants may bring in related books and pictures as possible reference material for the demonstrations. Knoth also reminds people that this class is also for the young at heart.
Sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin, the workshops, for age 6 and up, are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. Children age 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Ongoing workshops meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm, Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., hosted by Friends of Rockland Library. FMI - Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.
