Children's Drawing Class

"Let's Draw a March Medley!"

This March, children will draw the Iditarod Dog Sled Races, St. Patrick's Day, Spring, and the circus, at Rockland Public Library's ongoing children's 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 2017 is March 20th. Traditionally March was when 'the circus comes to town', bringing acrobats, animals, clowns, and tents.
