Rockland — Local artist Catinka Knoth will lead a November series of free drawing classes for adults on creating Woodland Animals and November Themes, at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St. Classes meet most Mondays at 11 a.m. in the community room, beginning Nov. 4.

Participants create art using colored pencils and crayons this month, with an emphasis on drawing in color. Each week offers a different woodland animal and November theme scene: Nov. 4, deer; Nov. 18, woodland animals and wild turkeys; and Nov. 25, Native American motifs. The library is closed for Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

Students will use a variety of exercises and methods to help develop new ways of seeing, observing and designing.

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.
