Welcome to the NYC Urban Sketchers
Famous First Annual Picnic Summer Celebration
Sunday - July 10th
It doesn’t feel right to call this our holiday party, since the winter holiday season is long gone. We’ve waited to have a big get together until it was summer and we could be outdoors.
The Queens Botanical Garden is a real gem. The 39-acre site features rose, bee, herb, wedding, and perennial gardens; an arboretum; and an art gallery.
It’s such a lovely spot, and the QBG seems to love the idea that artists would come to their oasis to capture the beauty of the surroundings.
We’ve also rented a gorgeous indoor space, so, no matter what weather, we will be able to sketch together. We have loads of surprises for you including free art supplies, sweets, drinks, a Silent Auction with really cool items as well as and the opportunity to bid on some unique art related objects that you’ll love.
There is a $10 registration fee that includes admission to the gardens. Bring your own lunch, we’re supplying desert.
