Rockland — Local artist Catinka Knoth will lead a January series of free drawing classes for adults on creating Winter Scenes at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Classes meet most Mondays at 11 a.m. in the community room, beginning Jan. 6.

Participants create art using pencil, colored pencil, crayon and sometimes papercutting, with an emphasis on drawing in color. Each week offers a different winter scene: Jan. 6, Evergreens in snow/papercuts; Jan. 13, Winter scenes; Jan. 20, No class/library closed for Martin Luther King Day; and Jan. 27, Penguins and winter sports figures.

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.
