‘Let's Draw A March Medley!’
ROCKLAND — This March, children will draw the Iditarod dog sled races, St. Patrick's Day, spring and the circus at Rockland Public Library's ongoing children's drawing workshops, led by Rockland artist Catinka Knoth.
Participants follow along with Knoth as she demonstrates creating a variety of subjects for March.
Husky dogs, mushers and dog sled teams are motifs from the Iditarod Race in Alaska. The class may also experiment with papercuts of dog teams. St. Patrick's Day has its shamrocks, St. Patrick, leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows and Celtic designs. The first day of spring in 2017 is March 20. Traditionally March was when “the circus comes to town,” bringing acrobats, animals, clowns and tents.
Tuesdays; 4-5 p.m., Let's Draw a March Medley!, 2017
March 7 — The Iditarod races and sled dogs

Local patrons, Wendy and Keith Wellin, provide the workshops free and open to the public, with all materials provided. The workshops, for ages 6 and up as well as the young at heart, offer the opportunity to make art together. Children age 10 and under need adult accompaniment. Knoth expects participants to be able to work independently for the most part. The workshops are held in the Community Room of Rockland Public Library and hosted by Friends of Rockland Library.
