Rockland — Children will continue exploring Maine memories this summer at the weekly drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at Rockland Public 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 to 5 p.m., Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., hosted by the Friends of Rockland Library. For more information, Jean Young, children's librarian, 594-0310.

August themes will include subjects such as: Maine lighthouses and boats, 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.

Aug. 5 "Let's draw Maine lighthouses and boats!"

Aug. 12 "Let's draw Maine birds!"

Aug. 19 "Let's draw Maine farming scenes!"

Aug 26 "Let's draw a Maine country fair"

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. Her work may be seen at catinkacards.com.
