Catinka Knoth will teach drawing Scenes of September in Maine, with a focus on buildings, Mondays at 11 a.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.  Led by Knoth, participants will make their own drawings in color.

Knoth offers the workshops free and open to the general public, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library hosts the series. For more information, call 596-0069 or the library at 594-0310.

Knoth will lead students in drawing several scenes of iconic local Maine buildings. Students may experience simple aspects of perspective theory; and they also will practice the technique of coloring in, without using outlines. Familiar buildings from St. George and South Thomaston along the St. George peninsula and Route 131 will be the subjects for the classes, which will be different every week: Sept. 12, Harjula's barn; Sept. 19, a classic Maine farmhouse; and Sept. 26, St. George Grange. The library is closed on Labor Day.

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 Rockland Public Library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith

Wellin. For more information about Knoth's work, visit
