NYC USK to be featured in Drawing Attention

Christmas Decorations In Mid-Town Manhattan, 9 West 57th Street; New York  City, New York, United States Of America - Stock Photo - Dissolve

Cathy Gutterman has been writing articles for our Ezine, Drawing Attention featuring the newest chapters in the organization.  She has now been asked to do a feature article on Holiday Decorations.  Let's get in there and help her out!!

Dyker Heights Christmas Lights

Cathy will be contacting chapters all over the world to submit pictures of holiday decoration in their areas and wants to include some of our own NYC USK members.  To have your sketches considered for the article please follow these guidelines:

  • All sketches must be done according to USK guidelines: done live and on site
  • Use any medium you wish
  • Use any size or format you want
  • Deadline for submission is Monday December 7

The sketch can be anything from your own house to the fabulous displays that NYC is know for.  It would be especially good if you could include something recognizable as NYC.

If you are not leaving you house or neghborhood consider doing your own decoration or those you see from your window.  If you are willing to go a bit farther afield consider decorations in your neighborhood, pop-up holiday markets, displays at churches/synagogues (indoors or out) , midtown Manhattan, Rockefeller Center, NY Public Library (I love the lions with wreaths around their necks!), the skyline with buildings lit for the holidays, the Bronx Zoo, parks and plazas ablaze with holiday lights, Salvation Army Santas, Santa at Macy' get the idea!  If you are up for a challenge, try one of the fabulous store windows on 5th Ave!
