Children will continue to explore Maine memories this summer at the weekly drawing classes led by Catinka Knoth at the Rockland Public Library. Children ages 6 and older follow along with Knoth in drawing a variety of motifs. Children age 10 and younger 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. The classes meet every Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Community Room of the library. They are hosted by the Friends of Rockland Library.

August themes will include subjects such as Maine lighthouses including Marshall Point Light; Maine boats such as rowboats, Friendship sloops, sailboats and lobsterboats; Maine farms with blueberry farming and Belted Galloways; a Maine country fair; and Maine birds such as puffins, eagles, ospreys and chickadees.

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. Knoth, known for her watercolors of Maine scenes and animal drawings, also gives watercolor workshops for adults. Her work may be seen at
