About Topsfield
map
Topsfield Massachusetts is an area of rolling hills and meandering streams and has some of the highest land in Essex County. Topsfield has a rural nature and contains a typical New England town common.

The town is home to many acres of protected land and trails which includes Bradley Palmer State Park. It is an excellent choice for hiking and biking in the spring and summer and cross country skiing in the winter. Topsfield also has plenty of agricultural land and hosts the Topsfield Fair.

The Topsfield Fair is America’s oldest agricultural fair established in 1818 and held every October during harvest time. The Fair is chock full of agricultural exhibits as well as homemade baked goods and farm animals. There is also a largest pumpkin contest-always the most popular exhibit. It also has plenty for the kids including great stuff to eat and also a midway loaded with amusement park rides and games and a parade. The Topsfield Fair is a fun time for everyone and well worth the price of admission. Plan to spend a day there next October-you will be glad you did.

Sketching and Naturalizing on Monhegan Island
Drawing from nature is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to discover the plants and animals around you. For naturalists, it is an ideal way to hone observation skills. This exciting weekend is designed for both artists and naturalists. Monhegan is indeed an artist's island, as with every view of its rockbound magnificent scenery a picture waits to be portrayed. Some of Maine's best known artists includingRockwell Kent; Edward Hopper; and N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth all found inspiration here. We will hike to a variety of island habitats, nearly 70 percent of which are wild and protected, and look and listen for the array of songbirds and seabirds either nesting or on their spring migratory route. We will learn the art of nature sketching, develop observation skills, and cover topics on shape, perspective, tone, and texture. Graphite pencils and pens are the primary tools we will use. Colored pencils and watercolors will be introduced. The main objective is not to produce finished works, but rather to develop workable sketches that can then be used as reference for later paintings (for the artist), further natural history learning (for the naturalist), or simply for personal journaling. Our base of residence for this spectacular weekend is the Trailing Yew, known for delicious home-cooked meals and its location on a vista overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. No prior drawing lessons are necessary; however, Sandy will offer a few one-day sketching/painting workshops during the winter/spring season. Consider signing up for one or more to get a jump-start on your drawing skills and prepare for a longer weekend of learning and practicing. Start time is approximate. Registration is required. Call (978) 887-9264 for details. See http://www.massaudubon.org/catalog/listing.php?program_code=1549-IP13SP1 for more information.
