Press Release:

Series in August  at Rockland Library, 2016

Rockland - Catinka Knoth will teach drawing  Midcoast Maine lighthouse 
and boat scenes, most Mondays in August  at 11 am. in the Community Room, 
Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.  Led by Knoth, participants make 
their own lighthouse and boat drawings  using colored pencils and

The workshops are hosted by Friends of Rockland Library and open to the 
general public. FMI Knoth at 596-0069 or Rockland Library at 594-0310.

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 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
