Children will draw May flowers and May baskets, Mother’s Day cards, marsh life, Memorial Day themes, and migratory birds at this month’s children’s drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth. May is also American Wetlands Month. Children will explore marsh and wetland habitats by drawing such animals as egrets, frogs, and beavers.
International Migratory Birds Day, another May celebration, gives the opportunity to draw Spring warblers and other migratory birds. Knoth leads attendees in step-by-step drawing instruction for the day’s theme. The class also works with papercutting.
Wendy and Keith Wellin sponsor the ongoing free workshops, geared for age 6and up, (including the young at heart). Children age 10 and under need adult accompaniment. Knoth expects participants to work independently for the most part. The workshops provide all materials. Classes meet every Tuesday, 4-5 pm., Community Room, Rockland Public Library.
