Rockland — Children will draw in celebration of spring this April at Rockland Public Library.

Participants draw along with artist Catinka Knoth as she demonstrates. Subjects may include fairy tale papercuts in honor of Hans Christian Anderson's birthday; Easter eggs and bunnies; koi kites and cherry trees for the Japanese Spring Festival; baby animals such as bunnies, puppies, kittens, lambs, and colts; spring peepers, birds' nests and fledglings, and spring flowers such as crocuses, daffodils, and tulips.

April 1: Fairy Tale papercuts

April 8: Easter bunnies, eggs cards and scenes

April 15: Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival

April 22: Baby animals

April 29: Spring peepers, birds nests, spring flowers

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. Library policy requests that children age 10 and under have an adult accompany them. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. Classes provide all materials and 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.
