Tuesdays 4-5 p.m. Children will explore motifs from the traditional celebrations of December in the free drawing classesled by Catinka Knoth. Christmas, Chanukah, Winter solstice, Kwanza, and the New Year offer lots of imagery for creative fun.

Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas for the session's drawing. Knoth then leads children age 6 and up in "follow along" drawings. She expects children to work independently and encourages adults to participate by making their own drawings. If time allows, Knoth takes group photos of the students' work at the end of class.
Classes meet every Tuesday, 4-5pm, in the Community Room. Children 10 and under need adult accompaniment. 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.
