Adult Art Workshop
Mondays at 11 am
Catinka Knoth will teach drawing Midcoast Maine lighthouse and boat scenes, Mondays in August at 11 am. 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:
8/04 Marshall Point Light
8/11 Rockland Breakwater
8/18 Sailboats by Rockland Breakwater
8/25 Lobsterboat heads home by Marshall Pt.
Knoth offers the workshops free of charge with materials supplied. 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 has taught students of all ages to do their own variations of this view.
