ROCKLAND — Children will explore motifs from the traditional celebrations of December in the free drawing classes at Rockland Public Library led by Catinka Knoth.

Classes meet every Tuesday, 4 - 5 p.m., in the Community Room, Rockland Public Library.

Children 10 and under need adult accompaniment.

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.

12/04    Gingerbread houses and holiday decorations

12/11    Christmas and holiday cards

12/18    Holiday cards and winter solstice

12/25   No class, library closed for Christmas

12/31    No class, library closed for New Year's Day

Class often starts with a period of guessing and brainstorming ideas  for the session's drawing. Knoth then leads children age 6 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.

The program, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin, 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.
