Rockland - Catinka Knoth will give a series of free drawing classes on depicting Maine coastal floral scenes, at Rockland Public Library, 80 Union Street. Classes meet in the Community Room, 11 a.m., Mondays in July. The first scene will revisit Knoth's painting "Lupine at Mosquito Harbor, Martinsville..". Participants will create art using pencils, colored pencils, crayons, and scissors, with an emphasis on drawing in color. Each week is different scene. Knoth will give instruction and guidance. She invites students of all levels to come make art in this communal and diverse environment.
Each week offers a different scene to explore:

7/14 - "Rosa Rugosa - Beach Roses by the Maine Seashore"
7/21 - "Oriental Poppies in an Early Summer Garden"
