ROCKLAND — Catinka Knoth will teach drawing "Scenes of September in Maine," with a focus on buildings, most Mondays in September, at 11 a.m., in the Community Room of Rockland Public Library.
Led by Knoth, participants will make their own drawings in color, using colored pencils and crayons. Knoth offers the adult workshops free and open to the general public, with materials supplied.
Knoth will lead students in drawing several scenes of iconic local Maine buildings. Students may experience simple aspects of perspective theory. They will also practice the technique of coloring in without using outlines. Familiar buildings from St. George and South Thomaston along the St. George peninsula and Rte 131 will serve as subjects for the classes. Each week is a different building – a one-room schoolhouse or church, a barn, and a grange.
