SATURDAY: Sketch the Sutton Parks


We’ve been doing a lot of sketching below 14th Street to support the art show, which means we’ve been ignoring some very interesting locations outside that area.

Did you know there are a string of parks on Sutton Place around the area of the 59th Street Bridge?  I knew of one place that we’ve used for sketching, but there are at least five others that all look interesting and very sketchable.


What:   We will be sketching the Sutton Place Parks moving north during the day.

Where:   We’re meeting at Sutton Park  located at 500-514 E 55th St.  We’ll be exploring and changing locations moving north to explore the different parks. (see map)


When:  Meet at 10 AM.  Sleeping late?  Come anyway - we’ll be there


-   By Subway:  

Lexington Avenue and 53rd St. - the E or the M train

You may need to take a bus if walking is a problem.  

There are no subway stations nearby, but it should be a pleasant walk.

         (see map below).

    Lunch:  12:30 PM .  Bring your own or rely on local vendors.  There are many food options in the neighborhood.  Our lunch location is to be determined 

    Afternoon:  1:30 PM  Back to the sketching

    Show and Tell:  3:00 PM - We’ll find a likely spot (possibly where we had lunch) to share our work, tell stories and talk about what artists talk about.


    -     Bring a hat and be prepared for sunshine  

    -     Bring a stool, it gives you more options.  There are benches in the parks but having your own means you set up and sketch exactly where you like.
