ROCKLAND — Local artist Catinka Knoth will lead workshops on creating art for May themes such as American Wetlands Month and International Migratory Birds Day, at Rockland Public Library.
Classes meet 11 a.m., Mondays, in the Community Room, Rockland Public Library, 80 Union Street.
Led by Knoth, participants create their own art.
Each week is a different subject:
5/06 May flowers and baskets
5/13 Frogs, lily ponds, herons, AND egrets
5/20 Migratory birds and warblers
5/27 Library closed for Memorial Day
Knoth provides instruction and guidance in drawing and creating the May themes. Each week class explores a different subject. Participants work with pencil, colored pencil, crayon, and sometimes with scissors and collage, with a focus on drawing in color.
Knoth paints watercolors of Maine and whimsical animal scenes, which she offers as cards and prints. Knoth also 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 www.catinkacards.com.
Knoth provides the classes free of charge, with materials supplied. Friends of Rockland Library host the workshops. FMI Knoth at 593-6085 or Rockland Library at 594-0310.
