Weekday Sketchers at Elizabeth Street Garden

Of all the gardens in NYC, the Elizabeth Street Garden is truly unique.  It is part of the history of the Lower East Side: it is a bit unkempt, very quirky, fun to be in and fabulous to draw.  Come and spend the day with lions, funerary urns, reclining ladies and a strange array of artifacts hauled in from buildings being taken down in the neighborhood.  Come and enjoy the scenery, the flowers and the shade of the trees that are interspersed between the architectural artifacts. 

If you have been here before, you will find new and interesting things to draw.  If you have never been here you in for a wonderful treat. Come and celebrate this truly odd and remarkable place before the developers come and take it away.
