Why Rain Barrels?

Rain Barrel painted yellow with purple flowersPresented by the Abington Environmental Advisory Council

Learn how you can make a difference. Attend our workshop:
Tuesday, July 22, from 7-8 pm

You will learn...

Why you need a Rain Barrel

  • You can help the environment by collecting the rain-water from your roof and gutters with a rain barrel.
  • Rain barrels help lessen flooding, pollution and erosion.
  • With less rain-water running-off the land, less pollution will flow into our creeks and rivers.
  • Collecting and using your rain-water can also save you money on your water and sewer bills.

PHILADELPHIA’S RITTENHOUSE SQUARE

 

Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square by Robert M. SkalerFrom Swamp to Swank
An Illustrated Lecture by Robert Morris Skaler

Sunday, September 21, 2014 at 2 p.m.
Abington Free Library, Community Room


Register for this free event at: the Library Office, Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, Pennsylvania 19001, 215-885-5180, ext. 15, kburnham@mclinc.org, or online here.

Rittenhouse Square was the home of Philadelphia Society during America’s Gilded Age.

Established by William Penn in 1682 as the South-West Square and renamed in 1825, Rittenhouse Square and its environs changed from a swampy isolated district of brickyards and workers’ shanties into the city’s most elegant and prestigious neighborhood between 1845 and 1865.

The brownstone and marble mansions on the Square itself were inhabited by the city’s wealthiest and most prestigious families, with names like Weightman, Biddle, Cassatt, Drexel, Van Rensselaer, and Stotesbury.

As Philadelphia’s upper classes fled to the suburbs during the 20th century, their mansions were replaced by skyscrapers or taken over by cultural institutions like the Philadelphia Art Alliance and the Curtis Institute of Music.

While only a few original mansions remain on Rittenhouse Square today, it is still the center of a lively, upscale neighborhood and a prime example of an urban green space. Despite the many changes that have overtaken it, Rittenhouse Square remains just as Jane Jacobs described it in 1961: “A beloved, successful, much-used park, one of Philadelphia’s greatest assets”

... and it was recently named one of the top ten public places in North America.

 

Robert Morris Skaler is a forensic architect and historian, He is the author of West Philadelphia University City to 52nd St, Philadelphia’s Broad Street: South and North, and Society Hill and Old City for Arcadia Publishing. The book’s co-author, Thomas H. Keels, is a Philadelphia writer and historian who has authored Chestnut Hill, and Philadelphia Graveyards and Cemeteries for Arcadia and Forgotten Philadelphia.

A book signing by co-author Robert Skaler will follow the lecture.

October 8 - Working both ends from the middle - Experimenting with adding both the lights AND the darks ... a drawing exercise with white chalk and pencil/charcoal on grey paper

 

All sessions have an initial teaching segment, followed by drawing time. Students can bring in additional drawings, done during the week and utilizing the prior week’s skill, which Earl can critique for them.

Starting with the first class, bring:

  • at least 3 sharpened pencils (#2 pencils are fine)
  • 3 or 4 sheets of paper at least 9” x 12” but not bigger than 11” x 17”
  • Eraser (if there are good erasers on your pencils, that’s fine, or bring a separate  eraser, hard or kneaded)

 
Later in the classes we’ll also want:  

  • at least 3 better quality drawing pencils of different leads
  • a kneaded eraser
  • a sketch pad at least 9” x 12”
  • several sheets of 9” x 12” light or medium grey paper 
  • white drawing chalk
