SUNDAY: Sketch and Sail

August 23, 2015

A two-part day, come for either, ... come for both.

The Titanic Memorial

Sketch Pier 16 and the South Street Seaport.  We will meet at 10 AM at the corner of Water and Fulton Streets at the Titanic Memorial Park (see photo).  The first part of the day we'll sketch the walk from the Memorial down to the South Street Seaport.  Every inch of the walk is sketchable!

During one of our previous visits two years ago Lance Gambis 
created a video that you might enjoy that shows a portion of that day:

The Sail:  You need to purchase tickets in advance.  The sloop set sail at 1 PM and we return at 3 PM

We'll be sketching on-board the 1885 sailing vessel, Pioneer, for Draw-Mania!,W'll have the opportunity to sketch during a two-hour Pioneer sail. Subjects include: three live art models, the harbor, shoreline, other boats, Pioneer, and the crew as they sail Pioneer. Please bring your own materials, bearing in mind that there will be no space for easels. Pioneer will provide extra water, paper towel, a place to keep work till ashore, and once ashore, fixative for those who wish to use it.

The vessel, first launched in 1885, was built as an iron-hulled sloop to carry cargo along the Delaware River and was even featured in an episode of "Boardwalk Empire."

We will depart at 1:00 pm and return at 3:00. Pioneer is docked on the South side of Pier 16, (past the Peking) on the East River. Walk east on Fulton Street and cross South Street to arrive on Pier 16. You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch, afternoon snack or favorite beverage to enjoy while sketching under sail!
