Artwork by: Catinka Knoth Summer is short, so best to capture its sights.

Rockland — Local artist Catinka Knoth will give a July series of free drawing classes on depicting Maine coastal floral scenes at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Classes meet Mondays from 11 a.m. to noon beginning July 9.

Participants create art using pencils, colored pencils, crayons and scissors, with an emphasis on drawing in color. Knoth gives instruction and guidance; and invites students of all levels to come make art in this communal and diverse environment. Each week offers a different scene to explore: July 9, lupines coastal scene; July 16, oriental poppies; July 23, Rosa rugosa beach roses; and July 30, a wildflower coastal scene.

Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library hosts the public workshops. Knoth, who creates whimsical animal scenes that she offers as cards and prints, also teaches a free weekly children's drawing class at the library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin.
