Kingston, NYKingston artist Temre Stanchfield has generously donated a painting called “Poolside” as a raffle event to help support the Kingston Land Trust’s Natural Playscape Committee. The committee is currently partnering with the George Washington Elementary School, a public Montessori school in Kingston, NY and one of only 200 in the US and Canada combined, to create a natural playscape outside the Children’s House classrooms.

A natural playscape is an outdoor play environment featuring natural elements like logs, boulders, trees, plants, and water that encourage active play, and at the same challenge children to investigate the physical world around them.  This new natural landscape will replace the existing blacktop desert with an inviting lush courtyard that will also be used by students as an outdoor classroom. Design of the landscape will be accomplished with input from teachers, students, interested neighbors and professional designers.

Raffle tickets are available at $5.00 each or six for $25.00. The drawing will be held on Saturday, July 30th. Online ticket sales are available until Friday, July 29th.
