Sorry for the last minute notice….

If any of you are planning to stay for the dinner and music part after the art show (4pm) and sale at the Stuga, it’s necessary to pre-register/RSVP because there is only room for 40 people total in the hayloft.  Please go to the farm site and pre-register if you are making a day of it so LInsay can be sure there is room for all :O)  Scroll down the page to find the RSVP link: http://www.kitchawanfarm.com/backtothegarden/Back_to_the_Garden_at_Kitchawan_Farm/Events_%26_Classes.html

Tomorrow last day at the farm….

We have had a wonderful time at the farm this summer. Tomorrow is our last morning and it is suppose to be a beautiful morning :0)

If I don’t see you tomorrow  enjoy the rest of your summer!  I’ll let those of you who have drawings know when you can drop off your pieces at the farm for our little art show.  It will be near the end of August :O)  If you want to sell copies of your art work please make copies on acid free paper 90lb. weight or above…nice card stock is fine.  You can make duplicates to be sold as well……

Yesterday was a gift…..

What spectacular weather we had on the farm yesterday.  It was breezy and sunny, the flowers are really bursting now!  Hope for more lovely weather next week!  Since this recent Tuesday was a make up we will be meeting next week as planned in the original schedule (August 6th).  If enough people would like to do an extra Tuesday on August 13th let me know by emailing me….it there is enough interest I’ll extend it one more week :O)

Finally sun!

We made it to the farm this past Tuesday and will be going again this coming Tuesday (June 25th from 9-noon).  After this Tuesday we will go back to every other Tuesday.  Linsay has kindly offered to allow people to stay and draw as long as they like after the class has finished….so if you think you want to make more of a day of it bring some lunch :O)

The farm is already bursting with lovely veggies and flowers…a little piece of heaven.

Supplies for drawing on the farm….

Watercolor paper journal or pad.  Comfortable size to carry…and work on in you lap or holding in your hands.  If you want to participate in the art show at the end of the summer you may want to use a pad with removable pages.  If you are not going to play with watercolors than regular sketch journal or pad will be fine.

Micron fine tip pen (black) tip  o1, 02, 03 are good choices :0)  Click on chart for a clear image….
