Holiday drawing class to be held for kids at Rockland Library

Nov 29, 2019
The hosted classes will teach children how to draw holiday motifs to get into the wintry spirit.

Rockland — Children will explore motifs from the traditional celebrations of December in free drawing classes at The Rockland Public Library led by Catinka Knoth. Classes meet most Tuesdays, 4 to 5 p.m., in the Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Children 10 and under need adult accompaniment. The program, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin, is free with all materials supplied, and hosted by Friends of Rockland Library. Contact the library at 594-0310 for more information.

Christmas, Winter Solstice, Chanukkah, and the New Year offer lots of imagery for creative fun. Students will create images such as holiday wreaths, trees, gingerbread houses, ornaments and decorations; Santa Claus, toys, and elves; reindeer and sleighs; gift giving and more.

Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas for the session's drawing. Knoth then leads children age six and up in "follow along" drawings. She expects children to work independently and encourages adults to participate by making their own drawings. If time allows, Knoth takes group photos of the students' work at the end of class.
