Weekday Urban Sketchers Honor Tax Day

Ah Spring, and its many harbingers: daffodils, robins and the IRS.  Yes, spring brings Tax Day and this Tuesday is when it falls this year.  Since it is hard to find a symbol of the IRS we will default to the Treasury for our drawing pleasure.  We will met at Federal Hall on Wall Street which was at one time the National Treasury and its oversized statue of George Washington.  Our morning challenge will be to find as many ways to represent George as possible: different backgrounds, different angles, color, B&W...your choice. Let's see how creative we can get.

For lunch and our afternoon session we will move over to Trinity Church where Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury, is buried.   The church and graveyard offer us another wonderful sketching opportunity: Gothic Church against modern skyscrapers, the greenery in the yard against the grit of the city.  What can you do with it?
