Drawing Workshops at Rockland Public Library, 2016
Rockland - Children will continue exploring Maine memories this summer

Library. Knoth leads children, (and adults), ages 6 and up, in
follow-along drawings on a variety of motifs. Children age 10 and under
should be accompanied by an adult.
Wendy and Keith Wellin sponsor the workshops, which are free and open
to the public with all materials provided. Classes meet every Tuesday,
4-5 pm, Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., hosted
by the Friends of Rockland Library. FMI - Jean Young, children's
August themes will include subjects such as: Maine lighthouses and
boats, Maine farms with blueberry farming and belted galloways; Maine birds such as puffins, eagles, ospreys, chickadees;
Maine farms with blueberry farming and belted galloways;
and, a Maine country fair. Each week is a different theme.
8/02 "Let's draw Maine lighthouses!"

8/16 "Let's draw Maine farming scenes!"
8/23 "Let's draw Maine birds!"

Knoth believes that everyone can draw if they keep their minds and eyes
open, and that drawing by 'following along' allows one to discover new
ways of interpreting subjects. She expects participants to be able to
work independently for the most part. Knoth, known for her watercolors
of Maine scenes and animal drawings, also gives art workshops for
adults at the library. Her work may be seen at www.catinkacards.com
