SATURDAY: Draw the High Line

Meet at the Urban Theater on the High Line
(located at 17th Street and 10th Avenue)

A little unusual.  Yes, we have a planned sketch for Saturday.  No, I will not be there - it is an un-hosted event.  I have a work commitment this weekend (see below).  

On June 18th from 10:00am to 12:30pm artists and art lovers will take in the beauty of the High Line, one of New York’s greatest combinations of contemporary architecture and native greenery. This event has been advertised and will likely include loads of non-urban sketching people around the city.

Everyone will meet at the Urban Theater on the High Line (17th street and 10th avenue) between 10:00 and 10:30am to check in and pick up drawing supplies.  Participants can then explore the park on their own and return with their drawings by noon to get feedback from the artists and enjoy drinks and snacks with fellow art-lovers.

Participating artists and guests should be sure to register for the event through Eventbrite, and present their ticket for FREE drawing supplies and refreshments, sponsored by Sugarlift.

I’m going to be at the New York Botanic Garden doing Plein Air Painting in the Gazebo at the Home Gardening Center.  It’s a program to interest people to sketch in the gardens.  The Garden will provide art supplies to anyone who wants to try their hand.  I’m there to encourage people to try.  As an Urban Sketcher that’s a role that I relish.

I’ve committed to be at the NYBG on several dates this summer which cuts into my time planning and hosting Urban Sketching events.

Rather than just cancel I’d like to find a way to occasionally hand-off the responsibilities to someone who feels committed to what we’re doing.  If you might be interested in acting as a backup please send me an email.
