Tuesdays 4-5 p.m.
The "Let's Draw Together!" workshops, geared for ages 6 and up, also welcome adults. Library policy requests that children 10 and under have an adult accompany them. Classes meet every Tuesday from 4-5 p.m. downstairs in the Friends Community Room.
This month children will explore motifs from the traditional celebrations of December in the free drawing classes at Rockland Public Library led by Catinka Knoth. Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanza, Winter solstice, and the New Year offer lots of imagery for creative fun. Students will draw images such as holiday wreaths, trees, gingerbread houses, ornaments and decorations; Santa Claus, toys, & elves; reindeer and sleighs; gift giving and more.
12/10 Gingerbread houses & holiday decorations
12/17 Christmas holiday cards
And, pending notice of city closures:
12/24 Christmas trees, & Winter Solstice
12/31 New Year's Celebrations
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.
