SUNDAY: USk Sketch Together


We can sometimes lose sight of the fact that as Urban Sketchers we belong to an international organization.  This Sunday October 17, 2021  sketchers all over the world will be sketching together - a hundred thousand sketchers on every continent.

It's been suggested that we pick an iconic location.  You've probably noticed that it's hard to see NYC when you're in the middle.  I can think of no more beautiful view of our city than the one provided by Roosevelt Island.  We will be sketching on the southern part of the island facing the United Nations and the midtown skyline, or facing east you'll see the iconic Pepsi sign in Long Island City.

Participate in the world's largest Show and Tell:

When you share your artwork with all the sketchers around the world, please use these tags:  


 The USk Social Media team will pick it up to share with our global community

What:  Sketch the views from the southern end of Roosevelt Island

Where:   We will meet at the Information Booth (see photo) , and will wait there from 10 to 10:30.  There is good sketching right at that spot.   At 10:30 we'll start to walk south along the West Loop Road (see map below)

When:  Start time - 10 AM to 10:30 AM .   Running late?  Messed up by the subways?  Come anyway - we'll be there.

-   By Subway:  F Train to Roosevelt Island stop.

Lunch:  We'll break at 12:00 - Bringyourowni or rely on vendors.  We'll find a shady spot .

Afternoon:  1:00  Back to serious sketching.   

Show and Tell:  3:00 PM -  We'll probably use our lunch locations to share our sketches and tell stories.  We'll also remind each other to use the special event handles:  @urbansketchers   #usksketchtogether   #sketchtogether 

-      Bring a hat
-      Bring a stool if you have one, it gives you more options.
