Children will explore drawing Maine memories this July at the weekly drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public Library.

Children ages 6 and up follow along with Knoth in drawing a variety of motifs. July themes will include subjects such as: favorite dogs and cats from Maine books; Rockland — buildings and landmarks of a Maine town; marine mammals — harbor seals, whales, porpoises; and classic Maine scenes.

Students follow along with Knoth as she demonstrates drawing a variety of motifs. Knoth gears the classes for age 6 and up, including the young at heart. She expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. Children age 10 and under need adult accompaniment, according to library policy.
