Patricia Louise Corbett will be giving a 6-week drawing class starting Wednesday, April 10th at Maple & Main Gallery, One Maple Street, Chester 06412!Regardless of whether you are a beginning or advanced artist, here is a practical and preliminary approach that will enhance your drawing skills and be fun at the same time. Reviewing and brushing up is an ongoing process. And drawing is the building-block for painting. We will start by understanding how to get the basic essence of a subject through gesture and quick studies using pencil, conte crayon, charcoal, and other basic media and move on from there. Contour or line drawing, values, light and shadow, negative space, and more will be covered in landscape sketches, still life and figure drawing.
Ms. Corbett started drawing at a very young age and continued to develop her technique with well-known artist, Sherrie McGraw. Ms. Corbett�s artwork is on exhibit at Maple & Main Gallery, Chester, and can be viewed at the gallery or on its website: mapleandmaingallery.com

Over 10,000 people, including about 5000 schoolchildren, visit New Pond Farm every year enjoying hands-on school field trips, environmental classes for children and families, and an annual adult lecture series.

Guide to Visiting New Pond Farm Education Center A few tips and requests to make your visit to New Pond Farm safe and enjoyable!
Please feel free to enjoy the farm daily between dawn and dusk. We ask that you sign the Guest Book that will be located on the wooden podium by the main entrance to our Learning Center.
Rest rooms and water fountains are located in the Learning Center, which is on the left as you pull into our Farm Road with the two signs. Doors should be open between 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Directions to the farm may be downloaded from our website: www.newpondfarm.org
Please beware of the electric fences and netting that crisscross the pastures and also surrounding our sheep. . Our dairy cows come up to the barnyard between 6:30 and 7 a.m. for morning milking, during the heat of the day they usually take refuge in the barn by the breeze of the large cow fans so they are difficult to see. The herd heads back out to pasture once the afternoon milking is done (around 4 p.m.) Please note that the cows will not be going out to pasture until the spring. We will have many calves in the spring-some will be in the upper paddock by the main barn and several of them will be in the first fenced-in pasture along the Farm Road.
Our flock of sheep will head out onto pasture in late April and rotates around Astronomy Hill and it is always easy to find.
Please do not go into the paddocks or fenced-in areas with the animals. Please do not feed the animals Please dispose of your trash in designated containers Sorry, no dogs are allowed

If find yourself longing for other types of refreshment while you are on the farm, West Redding Center is right around the corner.
