University Farm Program

Owned by Case Western Reserve, the University Farm, comprised of Squire Valleevue and Valley Ridge Farms, is a beautiful 389-acre property in Hunting Valley, Ohio featuring forests, ravines, waterfalls, meadows, ponds and a self-contained watershed. Farm classes take advantage of this spectacular landscape for inspiration and as a setting for learning about nature, cultivation and the environment.

Patricia Sigmier, Local Artist


In this course, we will explore painting with watercolor on location at Case Western Reserve University's Squire Valleevue Farm. This is an ideal venue for painting outdoors using direct observation of the natural light, shadows and ever-changing atmosphere. The changing season brings new colors of autumn to our palettes. This course includes demonstrations, group critiques as well as individual instructions. Students of all skill levels, including beginners, are welcome. Each student will work at his/her own pace. Bring a bag lunch. Limited Enrollment.
