Rockland — Catinka Knoth will teach drawing Scenes of September in Maine, with a focus on buildings, Mondays at 11 a.m. in the Community Room of  Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Led by Knoth, participants will make their own drawings in color, using colored pencils and crayons.

The Friends of Rockland Library hosts the adult workshops, which Knoth offers free and open to the general public, with materials supplied. This month, Knoth will lead students in drawing several scenes of iconic local Maine buildings. Students may experience simple aspects of  perspective theory; and also will 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: Sept. 10, Little Green Schoolhouse; Sept. 17, Harjula's Barn; and Sept. 24, St. George (Wiley's Corner) Grange.

Knoth also teaches a free weekly children's drawing class at the library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin. The local artist paints watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she offers as cards and prints; for more information about her work, visit
