Catinka Knoth will lead a drawing workshop series for adults on creating April Art. Attendees will explore themes such as spring papercuts in celebration of Hans Christian Anderson's birthday; Easter eggs and cards; and spring flowers.

The hour-long classes meet Mondays, April 7, 14 and 28, at 11 a.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. The library is closed April 21 for Patriots Day.

Knoth will provide instruction and guidance in drawing and creating the April themes. Participants will work with pencil, colored pencil, crayon and, sometimes, scissors, with a focus on drawing in color. Each week is a different subject: April 7, Spring Papercuts; April 14, Easter eggs and cards; and April 28, Spring Flowers (tulips and daffodils).

Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library host the workshops, which are open to the public. Knoth also teaches a free weekly children's drawing class at the library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin. For more information, call Knoth at 596-0069 or the library at 594-0310.

Knoth paints watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she offers as cards and prints. To see more of her work, visit
