Rockland — Catinka Knoth will lead a weekly art workshop series for adults on creating art around March motifs; each week will be a different subject. Classes will meet Mondays at 11 a.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.

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 596-0069 or the library at 594-0310.

Led by Knoth, participants will create their own art. Participants will explore themes such as the Iditarod sled dog races and husky dogs, March 3; greens and the arrival of spring, March 10; St. Patrick’s Day and Celtic designs, March 17; and “The Circus Comes to Town,” March 24 (acrobat figures) and 31 (circus animals). Participants will work with pencil, colored pencil, crayon and papercutting, with a focus on drawing in color.

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 the library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin. For more information about Knoth's work, visit
