Tuesdays at 4:00 PM
Children's Drawing Class
Children will draw the Iditarod Dog Sled Races,
St. Patrick's Day, Spring, and the circus, at Rockland Public Library's
ongoing drawing workshops led by Rockland artist Catinka Knoth.
Participants follow along with Knoth as she demonstrates creating a
variety of subjects for March. Husky dogs, mushers and dog sled teams,
are motifs from the Iditarod Race in Alaska. The class may also
experiment with papercuts of dog teams. St. Patrick's Day has it's
shamrocks, St. Patrick, leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows, and Celtic
designs. The first day of Spring in 2015 is March 20th. Traditionally
March was when 'the circus comes to town', bringing acrobats, animals,
clowns, and tents. The class will also explore decorative egg designs,
cards, and motifs in preparation for Easter.
