Urban Sketching for Saturday February 22nd

An interesting day is planned for this coming Saturday.  We've been invited to a late afternoon class at the Manhattan Fencing School.  Drawing people is a challenge.  Drawing motion is even more difficult.  The classically beautiful moves of fencing will be our subject.

Please note:  This is a school and we'll need to be respectful and careful not to intrude

To warm up in the morning and to prepare for the challenge you're invited to the Spring Studio, considered by many artists to be the best place for Life Drawing in New York City.  The class runs from 9:30 - 12:30.  It's a popular class and the best seats are taken quickly. The class often fills to capacity.   Minerva will teach short anatomy lessons during the breaks.

Where:  The Spring Studio, downstairs at 64 Spring Street
How:   By Subway the #6 Spring Street stops right in front of the Studio,  or the B,D,F or M train to Broadway Lafayette is a two block walk south
When:  9:30 - 12:30
What:  Life Drawing from models
Price:  $18 per person

Where:  The Manhattan Fencing School,  225 W 39th St, between 7th and 8th Avenues
How:  Subways to Times Square
When:  3:00 PM
What:  We will be sketching students learning to fence
Price:  There is no charge.

Between the two events we'll be sketching at Times Square from the streets, if there is a weather miracle, or more likely from the 8th Floor Lobby of the New York Marriott Marquis at 1535 Broadway at 45 Street.
