Catinka Knoth will teach drawing woodland animals and themes of November, with a focus on drawing in color, 11 a.m. Mondays in November in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.

Knoth will lead participants in working with colored pencils and crayons to create their own colored drawings of woodland animals and November themes. Students will use a variety of exercises and methods to help develop new ways of seeing, observing and designing.

Each week will offers a different subject: Nov. 7, deer; Nov. 14, woodland animals; Nov. 21, wild turkeys and pheasants; and Nov. 28, Native American motifs — patchwork quilts/patterns. Knoth provides the classes free of charge and open to the general public, with materials supplied, and the Friends of Rockland Library host. For more information, call Knoth at 691-5544 or the library at 594-0310.

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 her work, visit
