Children will draw Mother's Day cards and May baskets, migratory birds, Memorial Day themes, and marsh life at this month's children's drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public Library.

The ongoing workshops, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin, for age 6 and up, (including the young at heart), are free and open to the public. Children age 10 and under should be accompanied by an adult. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. The workshops provide all materials. Classes meet every Tuesday, 4 to 5 p.m., Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., hosted by Friends of Rockland Library. For more information, contact Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.

May is also American Wetlands Month. Children will explore marsh and wetland habitats by drawing such animals as egrets, frogs, and beavers. International Migratory Birds Day is another May celebration and a chance to draw Spring warblers and other migratory birds. Knoth leads attendees in step-by-step drawing instruction for the day's theme. She encourages adults to participate and discover that drawing is for everyone.
