For October, children will explore Halloween and other seasonal themes in the ongoing free drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public Library. 80 Union St.

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.

Weekly themes for the month will be: Oct. 4, autumn leaves and trees; Oct. 11, pumpkin patches and scarecrows; Oct. 18, owls, bats and cats; Oct. 25, spooky Halloween with Jack-o-lanterns, haunted houses, witches, goblins, and more.

Classes are free and open to the public, with all materials provided. The ongoing classes meet every Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. For more information, call Jean Young, children's librarian, at 594-0310.
