SATURDAY & SUNDAY a Doubleheader

Take your pick - ... or do both, I am!

SATURDAY: Draw a Thon

(NUS = Technically not urban sketching) ... but who cares?!?

Who wouldn't love "an epic 9-hour marathon of figure drawing”?  It's a fund raiser for the High School of Art and Design organized by their alumni association.

It's also a three ring circus cubed of things to draw.  Two huge rooms with five models in each room, wearing crazy costumes in one room, and no costumes in the second room. Take your pick. Something to draw everywhere you look.  Figure drawing - the foundation of all art.

Saturday, March 14, 2015
1:00 PM to 10:00 PM
at The High School of Art & Design
245 East 56th Street, (between 2nd and 3rd Ave)
New York, NY
Admission = $20 for adults


Sketch the Music - Enjoy the Atmosphere at the Belle Reve

We've been looking for a really friendly bar with live music that loves having sketchers.  Found it.  Say hello to The Belle Reve.  Was there last Saturday with an Urban Sketcher visiting from Paris.  The staff loved that we were sketching and made a point of inviting us.  This Sunday they have a three piece band playing music in the style of the incomparable
Django Reinhardt.  Their food is excellent and the place has a great vibe.

Sunday March 15, at 11:00 AM, until - 
305 Church St,
at the corner of Walker St in hip TriBeCa.
