Rockland — Local artist Catinka Knoth will lead a September series of free drawing classes for adults on creating “Scenes of September in Maine,” at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Classes meet most Mondays at 11 a.m. in the community room, beginning Sept. 9.


Participants will create several scenes of iconic local Maine buildings using colored pencils and crayons. Students may experience simple aspects of perspective theory. They will also practice the technique of coloring in without using outlines. Familiar buildings from St. George and South Thomaston along the St. George peninsula and Route 131 will serve as subjects for the classes. Each week offers a different building: Sept. 9, Harjula’s Barn; Sept. 16, Fin-Am Church or Little Green Schoolhouse; and Sept. 23, St. George (Wiley’s Corner) Grange. There is no class Sept. 2 because of Labor Day, and no class Sept. 30 as the library is closed for staff development.

Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library hosts the public workshops. Knoth, who creates watercolors of Maine and 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.
