ROCKLAND — Local artist Catinka Knoth leads a series of free drawing classes for adults on creating birds and floral or berry motif art and cards, at Rockland Public Library.
Each class in June will be a different bird and plant combination – birds such as hummingbirds, cedar waxwings, and cardinals.
Classes meet Mondays, at 11 a.m., in June, in the Friends Community Room.
Participants will create art using pencils, colored pencils, crayons, and sometimes scissors, with an emphasis on drawing in color. Students do warm-up practices before working on final drawings.
Knoth will give instruction and guidance. She invites students of all levels to come make art in this communal and diverse environment.
Each week is a different subject:
06/03 Hummingbirds and Rhododendron
06/10 Cardinals and lilacs
06/17 Cedar Waxwings and berries
06/24 Red, White, and Blues!
Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library host the workshops, which are open to the public.

Knoth paints 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.
