Experience “en plein air” (in the open air) painting at the Cropsey Community Farm barn!  Learn basic drawing and painting while taking in the beauty of the farm. Barns have always been a popular subject matter for artists everywhere. Basic drawing and painting techniques (line, value, light and shadow), fundamental composition, and color relationships will be discussed.  Finished paintings at the end of the workshop can be displayed at a future farm event and could be auctioned off in support of the farm! Bring a picnic blanket or a beach chair. All art materials are provided. To register: email

The Farm Through Our Lenses: A Children’s Workshop in Digital Photography

4pm – 5:15pm

$10 per child, ages 7 and up. Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult.

John Altieri teaches students to operate basic functions of their camera… then it’s off to explore!  We will get close to the ground, to the plants, (and maybe even to some bugs!) and learn about the farm through our lenses.  Students need to bring a basic digital camera for which the child is responsible. Before the workshop, please make sure that the camera batteries are fully charged. To register: email
