Catinka Knoth will lead an art workshop series for adults on creating art around March motifs Mondays at 11 a.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.

Each week will be a different subject: March 4, Mardi Gras; March 11, St. Patrick’s Day greens and Celtic designs; March 18, Iditarod sled dog races and husky dogs; and March 25, “The Circus Comes to Town” (circus acrobats and animals).

Led by Knoth, participants will create their own art, working with pencil, colored pencil, crayon and papercutting, with a focus on drawing in color. Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library host the workshops, which are open to the public. For more information, call Knoth at 593-6085 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 Knoth's work, visit
