ROCKLAND — Catinka Knoth will teach drawing Midcoast Maine lighthouse and boat scenes, Mondays in August, at 11 a.m., in the Community Room, Rockland Public Library. Led by Knoth, participants make
their own lighthouse and boat drawings using colored pencils and crayons. Each week is a different scene:
8/05 Marshall Point Light
8/12 Rockland Breakwater
8/19 Sailboats by Rockland Breakwater
8/26 Lobsterboat heads home by Marshall Point
Knoth offers the workshops free of charge with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library host the adult art classes, which are open to the general public.
Participants will learn in the first session how to make a drawing of Marshall Point Light. Knoth will show how to depict the white forms of the tower, the pylons, and the walkway, by making the "negative" shapes of the deep blue sea that shows behind these objects. The dark turret and cap of the building will appear with the use of minimal strokes. Broad swaths of crayon marks and accent strokes will suggest the rocky shoreline. The dark green of Hupper's Island in the background provides further negative shapes to define the walkway.
This is a subject that needs no preliminary line drawing.
Knoth paints watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she offers as cards and prints. She teaches a free weekly children's drawing class, sponsored by Wendy and Keith Wellin, at Rockland Public
Library. For more information about Knoth's work visit catinkacards.com
