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 appear with the use of minimal strokes. Broad swaths of crayon marks and accent strokes 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 has taught students of all ages to do their own variations of this view.
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, also at Rockland Public Library. For more information about Knoth's work visit
