Ridgeway Farm Art Project Spring 2020 Update + part 1 of 9 map to print at home

Spring 2020 – Project Update
Hello everyone at Ridgeway Farm, my thoughts are with you in these challenging times as we all adjust to get through this current crises.
I hope that you stay well; fit, healthy and happy.
Unfortunately I have to postpone the 9th April Wildlife Wonder Photography workshop that parents had signed up to with Iain Green. As soon as we can fix another date for this I will let you know.
The good news is I have finished the front of the Ridgeway Farm Map and as I cannot hand deliver to you for a while, I thought that you might like to be able to print sections at home for colouring-in and adding your own drawings of nature you have seen you while home-schooling. I would love for you to share the coloured-in drawings on line via Instagram or Twitter and Facebook with the #ridgewayfarmart (Thanks to https://www.kitchencupboardpaint.com for the prompt!)

I have also loved seeing the rainbows and creative posts on the Ridgeway Farm Facebook page – great stuff!
The purpose of the map is to show you what wonder-full nature is out in the public open spaces around you – all the items drawn I have seen while on site and I hope you will be able to add more to this as you go on daily exercise around the estate and from your gardens. The illustrations on the map are a combination of my work wand drawings from residents and pupils at Ridgeway Farm Academy. The final printed map will have a reverse featuring more artwork, an urban legend and drawings from the community.
I will release different sections for you to print in black and white A4 size until you have a complete map – hopefully this will be some light relief and colour therapy over the next few weeks.
Thank you to the Beaver Scouts for inviting me to their Wednesday evening session – see you again!
The Community Orchard You can still sign up to be involved in choosing trees, planting and caring for your community orchard – just let me know! Bat Walk & Bat Boxes The bat walk and bat box making workshops will be postponed – hopefully we can plan these for later this year – watch this space for more info! The Art Work This is currently in the design phase – images to be released for comments very soon!
This is the longest period of time that I have been unable to visit ridgeway Farm as part of this ongoing community art project and I am looking forward to returning to site in the not too distant future.
