Mary Rogers, drawing. Catching leaves

Throughout Mary Rogers‘ many years at Pine Mountain the people, events, and particularly the natural environment caught her observant eye and she rendered drawings that capture the essence of the School.  Soon after arriving at Pine Mountain in 1942, Mary began to draw and she continued to draw for the remainder of her days and for her days at Pine Mountain which were the same.

Her whimsical, animated sketches graced the official bulletins, the Pine Mountain Notes, brochures, letter-heads, personal correspondence, Christmas cards,  and so much more.  She reminded us of what our eyes only moved across but did not see, or enjoy — and what joy there was in trying to catch a leaf, the movement of dance and the intimate moment of a small discovery in nature.  She taught so many to open their eyes and skillfully look at the world around them, it was a skill that is so often lost in today’s classroom education. As the founder of the Environmental Education Program at Pine Mountain Mary inspired all those around her to get out into nature and rub noses with a trillium, follow the Trailing Arbutus, and wonder about Little Brown Jugs. Pine Mountain can still offer that opportunity

The following drawings are but a fraction of the many subjects that she produced over the years.  We only wished we could have kept her with us longer. She died on Earth Day in 1983.
