Winter work in adult art workshops

Dec 31, 2017
Catinka Knoth captures winter using a variety of media.

Rockland — In January, Catinka Knoth will lead a weekly 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 at Rockland Public Library.

Classes will meet 11 a.m. Mondays, Jan. 8, 22 and 29, in the Friends Community Room of the library, 80 Union St. The library is closed Jan. 15 in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Led by Knoth, participants will create their own winter art. Each week offers a different subject: Jan. 8, evergreens in snow; Jan. 22, winter scenes; and Jan. 29, penguins and winter sports figures.

Knoth will provide instruction and guidance in drawing and creating the winter scenes of January. Participants will work with pencil, colored pencil, crayon and sometimes papercutting, with a focus on drawing in color.

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 691-5544 or the library at 594-0310.

Knoth creates 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 Rockland Public Library, sponsored by Wendy and Keith

Wellin. For more information about Knoth's work, visit
