Winter comes to adult art workshops

Dec 31, 2013
Artwork by: Catinka Knoth Winter scenes are the subject of January’s free art workshops for adults at Rockland Public Library.

Rockland — Catinka Knoth will lead an art workshop series for adults on creating scenes such as evergreen trees in snow, lacy snow-covered branches, buildings in a snowy landscape, winter animals and winter sports; each week will be a different subject. Classes meet 11 a.m. Mondays, Jan. 6, 13 and 27, in the downstairs Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. The library is closed Jan. 20 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Participants will create their own winter scenes, led by Knoth, who provides the classes free of charge with materials supplied. Participants will work with pencil, colored pencil, crayon and sometimes paper cutting, with a focus on drawing in color. Friends of Rockland Library host the workshops, which are open to the public. For more information, call Knoth at 596-0069 or the library at 594-0310.

Subjects by week will be: Jan. 6, evergreens in snow; Jan. 13, penguins and winter sports; and Jan. 27, winter scenes. Knoth paints watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she offers as cards and prints. She also teaches a free weekly children's drawing class at the library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin. For more information about Knoth's work, visit
