Fall, Halloween theme at children's drawing classes
Rockland — Children, and those young at heart, will explore fall and Halloween themes in the ongoing drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.
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 to 5 p.m. downstairs in the Friends Community Room.
October's subjects may include: autumn leaves and trees; pumpkin patches and scarecrows; owls, bats, and cats; haunted houses; and a spooky Halloween with jack-o-lanterns, witches, goblins, and more.
Oct 1: Autumn leaves and trees
Oct. 8: Pumpkin patches and scarecrows
Oct. 15: Owls and bats and cats
Oct. 22: Haunted houses
Oct. 29: Spooky Halloween with jack-o-lanterns, witches, goblins, and more.
The workshops, sponsored by local patrons Wendy and Keith Wellin, and hosted by Friends of Rockland Library, are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. Participants draw along with Knoth's demonstrations. She expects students to be able to work independently for the most part.
Knoth, a Rockland artist, is known for her watercolors of Maine scenes and animal drawings. Her work may be seen at catinkacards.com. For more workshop information, call Jean Young, children's librarian, at 594-0310.
