SUNDAY: The Blick SuperStore Sketch Event


As New York based artists we all want our local art stores to do well​.  Many of us are still in shock at the closing of New York Central and Pearl Paint.  So, it's exciting news that Blick has built a super-store on Broadway near Canal Street .  NYC Urban Sketchers has been invited to a special viewing at the new store.

Blick is preparing a special good-bag for everyone.  Since this requires a bit of work by Blick they've asked us to preregister.  If you use the link below to preregister - there will be a special gift there for you.

The Blick event will influence our day of sketching.  We are expected at the store at 11 AM.  We will meet at a nearby park for about a half hour of sketching before we walk to the new store.  See you at the Albert Capsouto Park at 10 AM.
