Mondays at 11:00 AM
Adult Drawing Workshop
"Maine Lighthouses and Boats"
Catinka Knoth will teach free drawing Midcoast Maine lighthouse and boat scenes, in the Community Room.
Led by Knoth, participants make their own lighthouse and boat drawings using colored pencils and
crayons. Each week is a different scene:
8/01 Marshall Point Light
8/08 Rockland Breakwater
8/15 Sailboats by Rockland Breakwater
8/22 Lobsterboat heads home by Marshall Pt.
8/27 No class
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 experience.
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 at Rockland Public Library, sponsored by Wendy
and Keith Wellin. For more information about Knoth's work visit
