Art on the Farm

Come and visit us at Willowtree Farm where the farm landscape meets creativity. Get creative and have fun making art outdoors, “en plein air”, letting the fields and farm animals inspire you!

While touring some of the most inspiring and animated parts of our farm, we will stop to learn, create and draw what we find along the way. The workshop will be focused on a style of drawing called gesture drawing, as a way of studying an object’s form and movement through art. Don’t let the terminology intimidate you; Gesture drawing simply means that the drawing is quick, simple, and often messy. Meaning anyone can do it! 

The experience is approximately 3 hours in length. We’ll begin our creative adventure on-foot, exploring and sightseeing different parts of the farm, starting with some of the buildings that play a critical role in our farming practices. We will then hop on a wagon ride through the farm fields, stopping along the way to explore a variety of produce at different growth stages.  The field tour will come to an end near our pastured farm animals with a delicious picnic lunch, made-in-house by our on-site kitchen staff.

Explore the beauty of the farm environment and let your creativity flow with Art on the Farm!
