Local artist Catinka Knoth will lead an art workshop series for adults on creating scenes such as evergreen trees in snow, lacy snow-covered branches, buildings in a snowy landscape, winter animals and winter sports beginning Monday, Jan. 7, at Rockland Public Library.

Classes meet 11 a.m. most Mondays; the exception this month is Jan. 21, when the library will be closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The workshops are held in the downstairs Community Room of the library, 80 Union St.

Led by Knoth, participants will create their own winter art, focusing on a different subject each week: Jan. 7, evergreens in snow and papercuts; Jan. 14, winter scenes; and Jan. 28, penguins and winter sports figures.

Knoth will provide instruction and guidance in drawing and creating winter scenes of January.  Participants will work with pencil, colored pencil, crayon and sometimes papercutting, with a focus on drawing in color.

Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library hosts the workshops, which are open to the public. For more information, call Knoth at 593-6085 or the library at 594-0310.

Knoth also teaches a free weekly children's drawing class at Rockland Public Library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin. And the artist creates watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she offers as cards and prints; for more information about her work, visit catinkacards.com.
