Children’s Drawing Workshop
“Let’s Draw February’s Celebrations!”
Children will draw images from February’s celebrations and traditions at Rockland Public Library’s ongoing drawing workshops led by artist Catinka Knoth. Young artists will draw a wide range of motifs. Valentine’s Day cards often have motifs such as hearts, birds, cupids, lace, ribbons, and roses. In honor of the presidents and Black History Month, students might also explore classic portraits and scenes. Chinese New Year 2019 is the Year of the Pig. Participants may explore traditional zodiac papercut designs, Chinese dragons, and Lion Dancers.
Sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin, the workshops, for age 6 and up,are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. Children age 10 and under should 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.
