SATURDAY: Sketch Socrates

That would be - Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria.  Located on the water with fantastic views of Roosevelt Island and Manhattan, the park is a tranquil oasis and a real jewel.  There is always some community related activities going on.

Socrates Sculpture Park was founded in 1986 by visionary sculptor Mark di Suvero as a community engaged, accessible arts space dedicated to supporting artists in the production and presentation of public artworks.

Socrates is now a New York City public park and significant cultural anchor in Queens exhibiting topical contemporary public art that intimately engages our five-acre waterfront landscape and diverse audiences.

WHERE: The Park’s address is 32-01 Vernon Boulevard / Long Island City, NY 11106. Our main entrance is located at the intersection of Vernon Boulevard and Broadway.

WHEN: We'll start at 10 AM.  Sleeping late?  Come anyway, we'll be there.

By Subway:
Take the N/W train to the Broadway station* in Queens and walk eight blocks west on Broadway (toward the East River) to the intersection of Vernon Boulevard.

Directions from almost everywhere:

LUNCH:  12:00 Noon  - Bring your own or rely on street vendors in the area.  The choices are limited without a bit of a walk.

AFTERNOON:  1 PM - Back to sketching.

SHOW and TELL:  3 PM  We'll probably find a quiet spot in the shade to share our drawings and tell stories.  Maybe we'll even get around to talking about art supplies, ... who knows!

_    Bring a hat!  Sketching is like sunbathing.  Keep covered
-    Bring a stool if you have one, it gives you more options. (And if you don't own one ask the other sketchers to try theirs.)
