Weekday Urban Sketcher at General Pencil in Jersey City

Look in your pencil case and assuredly you have charcoal pencils from the General Pencil Company. Now you have an opportunity to see where and how they are made. 

Urban Sketchers has been invited to visit the General Pencil factory in Jersey City for tour and sketch event. We will have a three hour opportunity to sketch the outside and inside of this 100 year old facility.  After the time at General Pencil we will move to the promenade on the Jersey City waterfront to sketch the Manhattan skyline from the Jersey side:  Remember that the one thing NJ has that NY doesn't have is the iconic view of Manhattan!!
