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 years old and up, in follow-along drawings on a variety of motifs. Children age 10 years old 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. The classes meet every Tuesday, 4 to 5 p.m., in the Community Room at Rockland Public Library, located at 80 Union St. It is hosted by the Friends of Rockland Library. For more information, contact Jean Young, children’s librarian, at 594-0310.

August themes will include subjects such as: Maine lighthouses – Marshall Point Light; Maine boats – rowboats, Friendship sloops, sailboats, and lobster boats, Maine farms with blueberry farming and Belted Galloways; Maine birds – puffins, eagles, ospreys, chickadees, and 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. Knoth, known for her watercolors of Maine scenes and animal drawings, also gives watercolor workshops for adults. Her work may be seen at
