Yeah!!!!!!! A date for Dick Rauh’s Tree Workshop :O)

Finally there is a new workshop date with Dick Rauh this coming Spring.  The new date is May 21st from 10am-3pm.  Sorry that there has been such a long delay.  Dick life is back in order but he is sharing his time between teaching at NYBG and spending time with his wife in Florida.  He has been booked for weekend classes at The New York Botanical Gardens far in advance but he will be all ours in the Spring.

For those of you who cannot do the workshop after such a long delay I understand and will happily refund you payment of $50.00.  You can email me with your mailing address at  For those of you who are still joining us it will be worth the wait :)

If any of my students are interested in a drawing table please let me know.  Our friend Sue is moving to Florida and is letting her drawing table go.  Please email me if your interested.

How to order from Kitchawan Farm..updated :)

Many of you have asked how to buy food from Kitchawan….here’s the information you will need to make orders!  On this link you will find what plants, veggies, herbs etc. are available for purchase at Kitchawan. There is a phone number at the top of the page where you can place your order a day in advance of pick-up.  If you want anything on the list on the day we have class be sure to put in your order the day before you come to the farm. It will then be ready for purchase in the stuga on the day you come to the farm.  Sign up for her email updates on the following site so you will know what’s new at the farm :)

For more information go to this link:

To place orders for pick-up at the farm call Linsay at 914/602-6011IMG_4632

Back to the farm :O)

Kitchawan is beckoning. We will be going to the farm on Wednesday mornings this summer from July 22nd thru August 26th, meeting from 9:30-12:30. That gives us 6 lovely weeks of drawing at the farm :)   This year I will be offering accordion books.  Please let me know if you want one and I will have it made up for you. Accordion books will be $10.00. We will discuss possible ways to create a story through page layouts and how to have a finished book of your summer at the farm.  You are welcome to make your own accordion book or draw in your journals or sketch pads… always the goal is to enjoy yourselves.  Choose your own medium….micron pens, watercolor, color pencils, pastels whatever you enjoy.

Cost will be $75.00 for six classes or $15.00 individual classes (pay as you go).

Contact me at if you want an accordion book for you or if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you there :)


Dick Rauh…and Watercolor Color Pencil Class….

For those coming to the Watercolor Color Pencil Class next week please bring watercolor brushes with you as well.  You will need small round watercolor brushes…size 2 and 0 should be plenty for the class :O)  Synthetic sable brushes are fine and only a few dollars a piece.

Dick Rauh Workshop….rescheduling……

Dick has contacted me this past week with the difficult news that his wife of 64 years needs to be located in a place where she can get more medical care, because of this he needs to reschedule his event with us.  I am trying to find a new date this Summer or in the early Fall.  I should have a new date within the next few days and will let you all know as soon as I have it sorted out with Dick.

Refunds will be given for those of you who cannot attend the new date. For those of you who can still attend I will just carry your payment forward.

I have told Dick to not worry about us and take care of his lovely wife….the trees will wait and so will we :)  I will post the new date as soon as I have one.
