Press Release - Themes for November Children's Drawing Classes at Rockland Library, 2015
Rockland - "Let's Draw in Celebration of Native American Heritage
Month, Thanksgiving, and the Coming of Winter!" is the November program
for the ongoing free drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland
Public Library. Children will explore such motifs as woodland animals;
Native American designs, lodging, hunting, and game; and foods and
family gatherings. Knoth leads children age 6 and up in these "follow
along" sessions every Tuesday, 4-5 pm, in the library's Community Room,
80 Union Street. Children 10 and under should be accompanied by an
adult. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently and
encourages adults to join in the drawing fun. Local patrons Wendy and
Keith Wellin sponsor the program, which is free with all materials
supplied, and hosted by Friends of Rockland Library. Contact Jean
Young, children's librarian, at 594-0310 for more information.

A friend taught me how to make creatures by needle felting sheep wool roving. This cat though the is made from cat 'roving', (if such a thing exists). The kitty is only just begun, a work in progress and my first attempt. What fun to make a little critter. My friend learned from youtube videos. It should be done against a firm foam rubber block. I used a piece of pool tubing instead.
Watercolor painting - vignette style, from my photo of a loaded apple bough arcing across the sky at a local apple orchard, during the height of apple picking season, (a few years back). We work from this photo every year in watercolor class. There will be as many variations of it as there are varieties of apples. No, I don't remember what kind of apple this was. Empire, Macoun? People here like Cortlands - good for pies they say.
