Dec 31, 2012
Catinka Knoth paints watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she uses as demonstration art in her library workshops.

Rockland — Local artist Catinka Knoth will lead an art workshop series for adults on creating scenes such as evergreen trees in snow, lacy snow-covered branches, buildings in a snowy landscape, winter animals and winter sports. Each week will cover a different subject.

Classes will meet Mondays, Jan. 7, 14 and 28 at 11 a.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. The library will be closed Monday, Jan. 21 for the Martin Luther King Day holiday.

Participants will create their own winter scenes, working with pencil, colored pencil,  crayon and sometimes paper cutting, with a focus on drawing in color. Knoth will provide instruction and guidance in drawing and creating winter scenes of January.

Knoth provides these 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.

Knoth also teaches a free weekly children's drawing class at Rockland Public Library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin. For more information about her work, visit
